Here's a really weird problem:

Been working on a small number of .odt documents for a project at an office workstation; now at remote location and when I try to open them on a laptop, all come up BLACK, and Writer chokes! (ownCloud provides the sharing between systems, and previous projects have worked just fine sharing Writer documents).

Both systems are OpenSuSE 13,2, .. the version on the laptop is Version: Build ID: 430m0(Build:2), but I can't verify the version on the workstation.

Would anyone have a suggestion for a possible resolution or troubleshooting?

You are describing the classic signs of an OpenGL/OpenCL bug (fixed December 2015). However, versions affected are after v4.3. See reply to Q64314 for info + fixes.
