Thanks again for your interest. I'm fairly certain that the problem is 
related to running on a Netbook and not in any way a LibreOffice bug. 
Not knowing what changes were made during installation of Lubuntu - 
certainly I didn't request a Netbook installation - I'm finding it a 
little difficult to track the problem down.

 From a cursory check it appears that all files are in similar 
directories in both machines and the links to the LO installation from 
/usr/share/applications (/opt/libreoffice3.5) appear identical so I'm 
stumped. :-)

Any pointers (pun intended) would be very welcome.
