Hello and thank you for this bug report.

Can you give us more details about this bug? Do you have this problem with other session (e.g. Unity)? Can you still interact with the dock?

Hello!

It seems to be it was (may be) a compiz problem.

This bug also affects me. It doesn't need to be started from the dock; starting it from Applications menu, terminal or Gnome-Do also makes the system freeze. It's not possible to interact with the dock or the desktop, only move the mouse or kill X server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace.

This bug does not occur with Gnome Shell or Unity.

Operating system: Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin
Kernel: Linux 3.2.0-29-generic
Cairo-Dock version 3.0.2
LibreOffice version: 1:3.5.5~rc3-0ubuntu1~ppa1

ADDITIONAL INFO:
I updated LibreOffice to version 3.5.6, and the problem remains.
Compiz version: 0.9.5.92

Here is my syslog at the time of the crash:
