When libreoffice-base is not installed, opening the "Bibliography Database" tool crashes Writer.
This seems to be a regression, as the same problem has been fixed before: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33266
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install libreoffice without Base
2. Open Writer
3. Tools > Bibliography Database
The program crashes.
The Bibliography Database window opens.

Out of curiosity, How can you install LibreOffice without Base?
I've just tried on windows and the installed doesn't offer that option
I guess that happened to me on an Ubuntu-derivative because I used, after adding a PPA:
sudo apt install libreoffice
sudo apt install libreoffice libreoffice-base
Not sure about Windows. The "reduced user installation (without Base)" option doesn't exist anymore?
Thank you for reporting in.
You may install LibreOffice Base so the problem will be fixed.
