The solution essentially is not to use theme oxygen-gtk.
Sad. It was a good theme. Don’t know why the four things suddenly stopped working together (Java, LibreOffice, glib2-devel, the oxygen-gtk theme). I use now Adwaita theme, which is too bright. Firefox is also affected.
I will try to use oxygen-gtk again after some time.
I spent one evening on this and was lucky to find the helpful website. Somebody must say who and where caused the trouble which may lie somewhere else.
It’s already fixed in the Gtk2-oxygen theme packages in KDE:Extra, so install gtk2-theme-oxygen and gtk2-engine-oxygen from there and it should not crash any more.
You should find the KDE:Extra repo in YaST->Software Repositories->Add->Community Repositories.

Patches are now in the update repo - if you run online update the crashes
should be fixed. They did fix my similar problems with GnuCash.
As already mentioned, this is fixed in the packages from the KDE:Extra repo only. An update for standard 13.1 is not available yet, but should be some time next week.
How do I correct this error in KDE and Gnome-shell, since I am primarily a Gnome-shell user.
Well, you have to actually use the Gtk2-oxygen theme that installing those updated packages helps.
If not, you definitely have a different problem than this thread is about, but your crash message does look similar.
As a workaround, you could either switch to LibreOffice’s own dialogs (in Settings->General), or switch to another Gtk2 theme (but I have no idea how you would do that in GNOME).
I added the KDE:extra repository but I found that gtk2-theme-oxygen gtk2-engine-oxygen were already installed. Running your command gives me:
I tried an unconditional upgrade in yast and nothing chaged. How do I install the KDE:extra packages? Sorry for sounding dumb, but I searched for gtk2-theme/engine-oxygen in yast.
Well I am using the Gtk2-oxygen theme, but like I said am not sure if I’m using the updated packages from KDE:extra.
I also tried another theme and that didn’t work. LibreOffice’s own dialogs works for me.
