I had openoffice 1.4 working great and then upgrading to 2.0.1-r1 and now openoffice crashes when I save in a microsoft format (.doc,.xls) but openoffice formats, text formats even .rtf works
anyone seen this? have a workaround? do I need to do a full system update first?

I think that first thing you should do before posting such situation is to run openoffice in terminal and paste here output when it crashes.

seems several people have issues with version 2 so why was the 1.1.5 version removed from portage? i'd be happy re-emerging an older working version but it's not in portage!

You can restore the ebuilds by adding them from Gentoo's CVS to your overlay:
