Tried that earlier but it did not help. I have tried killing them from
the System Monitor and from the terminal using kill -9 PID I see them
disappear but 15 seconds later they are back with a different PID.
OO seems to run OK but it is effecting other things I want to do on my
system. I installed LAMP and it reported some errors regarding OO. The
install completed and the components work ok but still I would like to
resolve this matter.
