After my upgrade to OpenOffice-2.0.3 when I tried to start it without a network connection it would show the splash screen, hang for a min, and then continue loading. This is caused by OO checking for an incorrect proxy setting.

To disable the network checks go to:
Tools->Options->Internet->Proxy

Change the proxy server to be 'None', instead of 'System'.

Restart OO and enjoy!
