Description Robert Großkopf 2016-07-28 10:14:39 UTC
Open a Base-document. Open a table or a query. Click with right mouse-button on header of one field. LO crashes immediately.

Also with daily build of 2016-07-20. Same behavior.

Couldn't set the importance to major or critical. But for me it's a major buggy behavior ...

This is my own debug build from 27/07/2016

1) Opened test database (hsqldb embedded)
2) Opened a table
3) Right mouse button click on table column header - no crash
4) Repeated test with query - no crash

So far, no repro for me on OSX

bt with symbols

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today + enable-dbgutil + above all with export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=kde4, I could reproduce this.

I attached a bt with symbols

BTW, I don't reproduce this with gtk3 or gtk2.

With 94165d249e5de53f52ce38140312e341f9fb5cbf, it's ok now (for kde4 + gen rendering which also had the problem)

Thank you Caolán for the quick fix! :-)
