If you open with an oo-installation without installed Math-Component a oo-document with an embedded formula inside the embedded object will be displayed with a placeholder. Clicking at the placeholder brings up a generic OLE-error message. Most people will simply think the application is buggy and has 'eaten' the formula like MS-word used to do it with embedded gafics. Replace the message with a more specific one : OLE-application for this object could not be found (<identifier>). Hint: Maybe this application or Open Office feature ist simply not yet installed on this machine. Try installing all Components to solve this problem.

TM->MRU: As talked about, please have a look.

More detailed descriptions of the "General OLE error" message is desired here. It does not only affect Math objects; also when a document contains other objects (even from 3rd party applications) where the server application is not installed on a certain system, this is the case.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
