Thanks to all who have responded, but let me see if I can clarify
and add to what I havve learned.

1. The limiting factor is the menu bar (File, Edit, View . . .)
where there are no icons. What is worse, I have a Spanish interface
which makes some of the items (words only) longer. I have seen no
way to change the size of the font on the bar, nor is it possible
to hide the menu bar, although there is a work around to create a
macro to do so mentioned in LO and OO fora.

2. The Anaphraseus extension is added to the menu bar, not a tool

3.  The problem does affect LO which I have on the computer
from which I am responding. It did not bother me there because I
have yet to add that extension there. However, minimum sizing IS
affected by the space required for the menu bar. (As a
parenthetical comment, when I work quikly, I can resize the window
smaller UNTIL the menu bar loads. I offer this in case someone
wants to test on an affected installation.)

4.  This is NOT a problem in the Windows version of 6.0. Sizing the
window smaller simply progressively hides the menu bar.

5.  Although LO has always been GTK based in Linux, I am not sure
if it now has a Qt interface to integrate better with KDE/Plasma
which may not be affected, hence my addition of GTK to the subject
line. (Input here welcome!)

6.  MOST IMPORTANT: Now that I understand better what is going on,
Tomorrow, I will recheck LO's Bugzilla for existing bugs and if
none is reported, will report this. I will also report the bug
number to this list, in this thread so that others can see and add
to it.

Again, many thanks for the help on this matter.

For what it's worth, it's not a problem on my LO on Linux
Mint 18 or LO on Puppy Tahr Linux. On both systems, the menu
bar just collapses as I shrink the window.


Not a problem with my on openSUSE Leap 42.3 either. English
interface with no extensions, if that matters, and I can make windows
as narrow as I want (1 pixel if I choose). I use the LXDE desktop.
