I am running LibreOffice on Debian (Stretch/9) with Xorg X and IceWM window manager. All apps are from debian repo's and are current versions as delivered by apt-get. All of my LibreOffice dialog boxes (file open, file save, etc) are appearing with the contents mis-allgined with the borders of the dialog window (imagine a window with it's contents moved up and left a few dozen pixles - not just the text, but everything - as if it were cut and re-pasted in the incorrect location). The area between the window border and the beginning of the window contents is black. Clicking anywhere in the black area of the dialog window instantly corrects the mis-allignment, but clicking on the dialog window anywhere other than the black area does not. Also, clicking on any other app (ie: WM triggered focus change) causes the alignment issue with the LO dialog box to correct (makes getting a screenshot a PITA).

Anyone have any suggestions as to why this is? As of yet, I can't find any of my other applications that have this issue, so it seems to be LibreOffice specific.

Update: This appears to be specific to running under IceWM. I tested with OpenBox and the behavior did not repeat.

Update 2: Apache OpenOffice does not suffer the same problem, despite being (presumably) a very similar code-base.

Update 3: I tested with OpenGL off and OpenGL on - no change in behavior.

Edit 4: Re-read the original description - more precise explanation of behavior added.

Edit 5: Update - tested on CentOS 6.x as the base OS, and the behavior does not duplicate. Furthermore, the dialog boxes appear substantially different - as if using a whole different library for their generation (they looks very QT/KDE/similar-ish on my Debian 9 system, and they look very gnome-ish on my CentOS 6 box).

UPDATE: My strong suspicion at this point is that there is a 3rd party library (or libraries) that LibreOffice depends on that is the root cause here. Does anyone know what library or libraries LibreOffice uses to create/display dialog boxes?

Thanks in advance. Below is a screenshot.

I have tried it with OpenGL both enabled and disbaled, and it did not change the behavior at all. It suffers the issue

I have tried with OpenGL disabled (actually that was the default), and it did not change the behavior at all. Thanks,
