No. It is a LibreOffice bug. You broke the usability of LibreOffice

*I* broke it? Sorry Larry I'm just a user like you.

It worked before.

Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Libreoffice *fixed* a bug that brought to light a Mac bug.

Deal with it.

It isn't Libreoffice's responsibility to 'work around' everyone else's bugs.

Any new user of LibreOffice on Macs will find out the database
doesn't work.

No - they will find that a *few* features/functions won't work.

The reality is *most* will never know it.

It is not Apples's responsibility to make your software usable

There is a *bug* in Apple's provided JRE package that has been there for
a very long time.

The Libreoffice devs finally decided to make a change to their code that
stops 'working around' Apple's long standing bug (at least thats how I
read the comments)...

There is a simple workaround that *you* can employ - install the JDK -
until Apple fixes *their* JRE package bug.
