First thing I would check would be your .sversionrc file... Is it pointing to ......../NeoOffice.app/Contents/MacOS ? Ed had some scripts that dealt with this, but if you're directly launching the executable then this might be an issue.

Chances are if you're getting the setup being triggered you're a "first time" previewer...er...tester...er...examiner of unfinished software...er...
As Dan mentioned, there's some custom setup bash scripts living inside of the bundle that would happily autoconfigure Neo for new user accounts or for being randomly relocated on a hard drive. Unfortunately all of these scripts were broken with the 1.1 update The only thing I can think of offhand is to try to create your .sversionrc file manually. I know the grep and replace stuff in the scripts...
If you've ever installed OOo 1.0.3 or OOo 1.1, you'll have a file in your home directory named ".sversionrc" (you can't see it with the Finder, you need to use a Terminal). Edit this file and add a line started with:
and after the second slash include the full path to the Resources directory of the Neo bundle including the initial slash of the pathname (e.g. there should be three slashes after file:).
I finally got it running ! Patching .sversionrc was actually needed to hinder setup from trying to fix my installation... Thanks for the hint.
But then soffice.bin crashed immediately after launching all the time, and I saw that it couldn't manage to load some resources. It turned out to be the iso64501.res which wasn't installed but needed by the registration dialog. Copying it over from solver or the offmgr output tree helped. How is it suposed to work ? I saw there is a neo645.res and ooo645.res created in offmgr but only the latter one found its way into the installation. But at runtime the iso resource is searched, so may be there are some compile switches/defines missing ?
