I launch LibreOffice base, create a new base, use the default (HSQLDB), just click next, OK, chose a file name, click OK, and it crashes.
"soffice.bin crashed with SIGSEGV in " “stack_expand_to()” or ""JNI_CreateJavaVM()
It is a 32bit machine, It crashes with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as well as the newest 17.04, fully updated. (Tried OpenJDK 8.131 and Oracle Java 8.144 and tried updating LO to latest version 5.4). I tried on a physical machine and on another one in VirtualBox.
It does not crash using a 64bit install. 32bits used to wor in 2016, before some Ubuntu updates in 16.04 LTS.
On 16.04 LTS there is typically: LibreOffice 5.1.6~rc2 / kernel 4.10.0 / OpenJDK 1.8.0_131
