LibreOffice: oosplash.bin eating 100% CPU

In some of the newer versions of LibreOffice, there is a problem with oosplash.bin,
for some unknown reason it's eating up the CPU.
The temp fix for this is to disable the loading of a splash screen by default.
So just edit
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/sofficerc that is the symlink to

/etc/libreoffice/sofficerc And change

Logo=1 with Logo=0 and the splash screen should not appear. More on
