I haven't checked this for a while, but I think that the java-based
report wizard (along with a couple of other wizards) was broken in 1.9
betas -- still the official OOo2 packages in breezy.  I
believe they are now fixed in the debian 2.0.x builds; if you search
the forums you'll find various threads describing how to upgrade (I
think Automatix can take care of that for you, for example).
