Updated today to 2.2 final - thanks Matthias & team :-)

I see. So *that* is the reason why it'll be stuck at 2.02 - thanks for
pointing that out...

The problem is resolved by uninstalling 2.0x and installing 2.1 or 2.2
directly from OOo. However, 2.02 came and went some time ago & it would
be nice to run 2.1 or 2.2 from the Ubuntu repositories in Dapper.
