Comment 2 Aron Budea 2017-03-04 03:09:30 UTC
I wonder in what way this is different compared to bug 88985.
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-03-04 04:50:55 UTC
Confirmed in / Windows 7.
Comment 4 LeMoyne Castle 2017-05-02 16:51:34 UTC
@Aron - that is a very good question ... There are other ways to start Basic besides the way that was protected by Caolan under bug 88985. 

There are two issues here: see the longer (longest?) note on bug 107297. 

The upshot:
I will work on the separate issues uncovered by 'crash in Basic on close of LO' bugs in the following way and order: 
1.  Bug 106294 - establish consistent protection for Basic at ALL calls that start StarBasic as Caolan did for bug 88985.  External to Basic + a direct fix.  Can test directly with close during long-running macro.
2.  Bug 107297 - Make Basic's destructors public to bring the destruction of Basic objects in compliance with C++ standards/best practices in order to avoid compiler+linker confusion and gross differences between VS and gcc versions.  Internal to Basic - an indirect (compiler-mediated) potential(!) fix.  Might be hard to verify and will require much more thorough testing of Basic to try to avoid side effects.  Will be obvious as a separate issue if the protection fix only works reliably on Linux and we still get crashes on Windows.

    tdf#127205 split Desktop::terminate process
    Trying to somehow keep stuff correctly alive, truned out to be
    rather futile. Originally I tried the same way Caolan did in the
    attached patch to tdf#88985, when he finally settled on adding a
    special terminate listener.
    But this is not enough to handle in-process scripted extensions,
    like Java, Python or even Basic macros themself.
    So this separates the module shutdown and SfxApplication cleanup
    from the rest of the terminate call.
