Thanks Paul -- that's helpful. The relevant output is 

executing: soffice -no-oosplash --writer
Unknown option -no-oosplash

Do you know how I get rid of the -no-oosplash bit? In External Programs
the command is libreoffice --writer '%s' and the command to open
Libreoffice from the applications menu is the same.

I realise this is not, as you say, a Claws issue but just in case you
did know... :)
