backtrace from my own build

When the Hyperlink dialog is opened right after starting the machine, leads to a crash.

1. Turn off / hibernate your computer/VM. This is needed to empty the clipboard.
2. Turn on the computer/VM
3. Start Writer or Calc
4. Insert - Hyperlink
-> crash.

This does not happen if there is anything already on the clipboard. But if that's empty, it always crashes with non-GTK3 backends. Checked with gen and Windows.

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community

Could you reproduce it under windows, too?

bt with debug symbols

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today + gen rendering, I could reproduce this.

Since I noticed:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::datatransfer::UnsupportedFlavorException'

I tried "catch throw" in gdb and got the attached bt.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2023-11-24 18:38:19 UTC
Just for the record, I don't reproduce this with gtk3 rendering.
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2023-11-24 19:29:47 UTC
I gave a try with https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/159939

I took a look at the other locations which call "getTransferData" and most of them (all?) just catch the exception and do nothing with it.
