I've had the broken pipe problem with a number of apps. OpenOffice.org 
fortunately wasn't one of them.

As far as the pipe issue, I tried:

$ sudo apt-get install plumber

but got a response of:

E: Couldn't find package plumber ;-)

[sorry, couldn't resist. ;-) ]

I'm not sure what the problem is with apt-get via the command line, but 
I've been finding a whole bunch of packages held back as well.  When I 
used Synaptic, that problem didn't occur.  I suppose I'm missing 
something from my "apt-get" command.

Yep, I've been amazed at how stable it is.  I'm being a bad boy and 
using it as my one-and-only OS for the past 10 days or so and I've had 
nothing significant problem-wise.

In fact it's better than Breezy due to the more current packages and 
that I can now install a bunch of KDE themes packaged for Debian sid, 
that weren't installable with Breezy.
