Description Mike Kaganski 2019-02-21 11:54:36 UTC
See https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/184010

1. Create a new text document
2. Make sure that current input language is en_US
3. Type ":pi:"
=> it auto-corrects to π
4. Press Ctrl+Z to undo auto-correct
5. Press Enter
=> it adds a new paragraph, and auto-corrects :pi: to π again
=> in debug builds, abort() is called at this stage
6. Press Ctrl+Z to undo auto-correct

=> !!br0ken!! is shown instead of :pi:

Hi Mike,
Thanks for reporting and fixing this issue.
According to the description, it's reproducible in 6.2 branch.
Should it be backported ?
