Description Michael Weghorn 2020-03-07 03:04:39 UTC
With 'master~2020-03-06_23.08.42_LibreOfficeViewer-strippedUIEditing-debug.apk', Android Viewer crashes for the following scenario:

0) uninstall any previous version of the app (to make sure that fontconfig initializes it's cache anew so loading the first doc takes a bit)
1) install the APK and start Android Viewer
2) open top-right menu, select "About" -> "Notice"
3) while document is still being loaded, press the back button

-> crash

Build ID: 9e8839c934da

Further notes: 

1) While it sounds like the scenario described and fixed in [1] ("android: LibreOfficeMainActivity::onStop: Add null check"), the used daily build contains that commit already, so there's another issue in addition.

2) 'adb logcat' output shows this:

This was originally mentioned on the mailing list:

-> setting to NEW myself, since Terrence is the original reporter and I can confirm
Comment 2 Terrence Enger 2020-03-07 14:56:42 UTC
The problem is fixed in daily build
Actually, the document loading is fast enough that it is hard to be
sure that I pressing the back button soon enough, but this is good
enough for me.

I am setting status RESOLVED WORKSFORME. But maybe it is possible to
give credit to commit adbc858d.  What do you think, Michael?

Since the commit does not really fix the underlying issue, I wouldn't give credit to it.

If I find the time, I still plan to take at least a quick look at what's the root cause. It might be responsible for other (not yet detected) problems.

I've taken a look and created this Gerrit change to address the root cause:
