I'm not certain. We had two distinct problems that were avoided by
Hugh's original patch together with f4cb767d76cf: the Oracle RDBMS
started and java programs worked. In my mind I'm conflating the second
of these with problems in LibreOffice.

Alas, the people who could confirm this for me are getting ready to
watch fireworks and generally have a good time.
