Running under kde wayland, in writer, if one selects any text, either with the mouse, or by shift-arrowkey, libreoffice crashes. Recovery information is saved.
Forcing the X11 backend (QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb libreofficedev7.1) makes everything work - but it's no longer wayland!
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Libreoffice under kde plasma wayland
2.Type some text, and then try to select it
Libreoffice crashes and saves recovery information
Text should be highlighted

Thanks. Unfortunately, my Plasma Wayland session on my dev computer is currently non-functional; will probably try again sometime later...
Got my Wayland setup working again.

vcl/clipboard: create instances with uno constructors
See tdf#74608 for motivation
Fix pending at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/99871
(Note, this doesn't crash when primary selection is available, e.g. in current KDE Neon devedition, where primary selection has been implemented already.)
Michael Weghorn committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#135212 Don't crash when unable to create clipboard
It will be available in 7.1.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
