User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.103 Safari/537.36
Build Identifier: LibreOffice 5.1.x and 4.x

When I write in Formula editor (Math) and I want to export the file to a pdf the interface of Math (LibreOffice or Math) crash.

Furthermore, if I export from a interface of Math, and later when LibreOffice crashed, the "LibreOffice Document Recovery" is correctly displayed; but when I click on "OK" sometimes is a new Formula editor file recovered not the original.

And, this I tried only in Windows 8 and 8.1.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the instalator from https://es.libreoffice.org/
2. Install the sofware with personal options
3. Select some dictionaries more and interface languages too
4. finish the instalation
5. Open LibreOffice at Windows 8 or 8.1
6. Open the Formula Editor (Math)
7. Write something at Math (Formula Editor)
8. Export the file (File -> Export...)
9. Math (Formula Editor) is crashed
Actual Results:  
Libre Offices crash, open the recovery wondow and later works normaly again.

Some time open in this point a new odf file not the original.

Expected Results:  
Formula editor (Math) has to export to a PDF

Can not confirm with Windows 8.1 Ent 64-bit en-US with

Export to PDF via Dialog (File -> Export: PDF) , Export via Toolbar (Export as PDF button), and Print to PDF (Ghostscript 9.18 & CutePDF Writer) all function as expected.

On the PDF export dialog I adjust default and check Range All, Images Lossless Compression--all other options unchecked.

Please clear you user profile and retest with defaults, or as configured above.

That's happen each time since my first time with LibreOffice (Windows 8). With Fedora 20 I never try it. Later, with windows 8.1 happen again, but I return to Windows 8 and happens yet.

Can not reproduce. Get clean export to PDF, as well as print to PDF with ghostscript filtering.

Attached the sample document recreated from the linked screenclips.

Please clear user profile and retest.

Also, any change if you disable OpenGL rendering?
