Bug Description

Using Libreoffice 4.2.3 from the Xbuntu repositories on 14.04 64bit.
Nvidia proprietary driver 331.67

When resizing a writer window, the rendering in the window is competently broken, showing artifacts from window borders but not the text. Further resize attempts do not change the contents of the window.
Sometimes Writer windows come up without any decoration at all.

Toggling hardware acceleration in the preferences does not change this behavior.

LO 4.3.3 from the Libreoffice web site does not show this problem.

I had the same problem, but fixed today after installing the libreoffice metapackage.

I suspect it was either libreoffice-gtk or libreoffice-gnome which did the trick.
