It seems to happen far more frequently in Calc, but I have had windows in
Writer do it too.  I don't recall any non-LO app showing this behavior.

I suspect something saves the window as one data type (floating point),
then passes it unmodified to something that expects another data type
(integer) and crash protection in cinnamon then zeroes out the value... or
maybe it just accepts the incompatible data which is received as zero.

I'm using a cinnamon variant of Ubuntu with a very low instance count.  I
didn't previously suspect this affected all cinnamon desktops, but it makes
sense that it does.

Thanks for that!!!

That analysis immediately "felt right" and it worked. I was wondering all
the time if it is a bug in cinnamon, or linux or LO... it makes sense
now!!! And it worked!

In cinnamon desktop or all of linux, there's some bug in linux or
LibreOffice that the window size becomes zero pixels wide and zero pixels
tall if the system or LibreOffice gets confused about what the non
maximized window size should be.

press Alt-spacebar to see a menu where this zero size window is being
placed, then either choose "resize" or position the cursor on the narrow
vertical line the height of the header/menu and resize it.

LO Spreadsheet does not allow me to adjust the screen partially. I can
either do full screen or minimize completely. I have no clue what keys I
might have accidentally touched. Still works fine in Writer, but no
in Calc.

Any ideas?
