Well, in my quest I found some advice for wine and it has worked
perfectly for me so far with Crossover Office.  Don't know why there
are such differences among us.

Here is the tip:

Precede every invocation of Crossover Office programs (like cxsetup or
wine or whatever) with "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5;"

Amazingly to me, it has made all the difference in the world.
