I found I did not need to install a Release Candidate to resolve this issue.
"Check for Updates" in OpenOffice release 3.1.1 OOO310m19 (build:9420) reported that OpenOffice 3.1 is up to date. It did not offer to install 3.2.
Clicking Secunia PSI's "Download Solution" button displayed a "Download OpenOffice.org 3.2.0" button. The button downloaded OpenOffice.org release 3.2.0 OOO320_m12 (build:9483). A Get Release Candidate button was also present but I did not use it.
Installing the downloaded release cleared the PSI vulnerability report.

Just to be clear , in the programme's "help" dropdown menu , the version shown in "about" as "OpenOffice.org release 3.2.0 OOO320_m12 (build:9483)" is shown in Secunia PSI "patched" tab as version 3.2.9476.500 - the detection rules (presumably) using version numbers found (mouse over , if you wish to check) on certain files in the OOo main folder. This was the same for 3.0. and 3.1 . The build N° is "usually" the guiding factor .
AFAIK this is the latest stable release (English language) as officially offered by OOo and not an RC .
It always seems impossible until its done.
