OK....so I downloaded NeoOffice a couple weeks ago....went to use it today and it didn't work. (It did work before, but I haven't actually used it yet.) It opens, then a blank white window opens (no little piece of paper on it or anything). Then the app freezes, using over 90% cpu, so I have to force quit. On a whim, uninstalled/deleted and redownloaded (with patch) and installed via the installer thing that comes with. Same result.

any ideas?

I did try Open Office, but that X11 crap drives me crazy.

Screenshot of this 'blank white window'?
when Neooffice opens it defaults to opening a new document.

On the Mac in your signature, it shouldn't be. Try removing the NeoOffice folder from your ~/Library/ folder and restarting NeoOffice. This will reset the application to its default state.
