My question is as above; I have checked the bullet spacing and paragraph and line spacing, and they all say single line spacing which as I understand it means there should be no spaces between lines. However, all of the bullet points I have added to my document have set the lines further apart, at 1.5 spacing I would guess.
Can anybody help me rein in these unruly little bastards?
I am using Libre Office Writer version 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402) if that helps.

I had the same problem. Spacing was set to single, before and after paragraph spacing set to 0.00". But still the spacing was larger at the bullet points than without bullet points. Then I realized the bullets have their own font and size independent of the text around it. I was typing in Times New Roman 10. When I clicked to the left of the bullet, the font was displayed as Times New Roman 12 (must be the default). Changing this to Times New Roman 10 solved the problem.

Check in your current Style (probably Default) in the Indents & Spacing tab if Spacing "Above paragraph" and "Below paragraph" are set to zero.
You can do the same under Format, Paragraph but that would only apply to your currently selected bullet list, while changing the Style applies to all in that document.
