I found it late Sunday night, looking for a fix for the spell checker in the word processor. The patch is about 36 MB for linux. Patches are also available for Window$ and Solaris.

For linux, the patch comes as a tar.Z, with a program in it. I applied the patch as root, after figuring out that root must have done a workstation install for him(it)self. The pseudo-registry for the patching user is used to locate the StarOffice installation directory."
