Have  you checked out OOo's forum or bug trackers? You may have more 
luck there if there is nothing on Launchpad, especially as OOo is such a large 
and distro/OS-spanning project.


But here are a couple of quickies:
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/369290
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/330366

http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=23726&start=0

Nothing helpful, though. I don't have this problem myself, but I only use a 
small number of text docs with very simple tables in them, and I don't have 
any problems opening them in Word 200-something at work.
