Description Mike Kaganski 2022-07-25 09:41:49 UTC
Sub crash
  stream = CreateUnoService("com.sun.star.io.TextInputStream")
End Sub

This crashes the process, which is an unacceptable outcome (it should raise an exception, translated to Basic run-time error).

The code of OTextInputStream [1] does not check if its mxStream is valid before dereferencing.

The easy hack is to add the checking code, that would throw an appropriate runtime exception.

LibreOffice crashes as reported by the OP. The interpreter should have treated this as a runtime exception and caught the error before crashing.
