We experienced this with some Word docs that contained embedded VB
macros.  The problem went away and we never found the cause.

Yes, they are.  The problem only occurs with Word, other Office apps are
I'm using SME Server V5 (formerly e-Smith and based on RH 7.1) as a PDC
file/print server and it runs well otherwise, but Word just quits.  I've
tried moving templates etc  the problem occured with a totally different
Samba PDC on RH7.3 so I think it must be a Word thing?  Trouble is I
want to
put in place what will be the first Linux solution in the postgrads lab
M$) so its gotta work!
