1.- Open the attachment
2.- Make a slightest modification (or Saves As)
3.- Save (yes to keep current format)
4.- Progress bar (bottom) hangs indefinitely. Have to kill process.

Right before the progress bar it says: "Exporting document"

I also noticed that if you delete the first reference in the second page-

[1] J. Smith, Proc. of the 1993 Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC), Atlanta, Georgia, August 12-15, pp. 21-33, 1993.

-it saves the document without problems.

[Reproducible] with sample doucment and "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC4 - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI  [OOO330m19 (build 6 / tag]" on 
64 bit AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor 32.2 GHz, 4GB RAM, 
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 430

Also that the hang disappears when reference will be deleted is reproducible.

This loop has been fixed in master branch in the meantime by this commit:

Could anyone review it for integration in libreoffice-3-3 branch?
Comment 9 Cédric Bosdonnat 2011-02-02 05:25:29 UTC
caolan, approved the fix for 3.3 on IRC. Cherry-picked it.

Confirm! Can not save in Write file *. odt with complex formatting as *. doc.
If you do not close Write by hand (kill the process soffice.bin) the process of saving *. odt as *. doc will take all the free disk space.

In OpenOffice.org Write it is working correctly - saving *. odt as *. doc *. odt as *. doc. is OK.

LibreOffice 3.3.0 final
OS: Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)

RUS: LO Write: виснет при сохранении документа .odt в .doc
При сохранении сложноформатированного (многостраничного) документа .odt в .doc Write виснет. При этом, если не завершить процесс Write вручную, он "забьет" всё свободное пространство диска.
