Screenshot before crash
My environment: XP SP3 Libo 3.3.2 - 330m19 (Build: 202)
Reproducible crash, Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new document (writer, calc ...)
2. Insert > Hyperlink
3. Choose the item document (not Internet, Mail&News or New document)
4. Enter the path to an existing database file (.odb) (hsql)
5. Click on the button : "Target in document"
- Either displaying potential target objects of a link
- Either a message "can not open this file"
Same crash with OOo 3.2.1 & 3.3.0 RC10
A search of OOo Issues gives this old resolved in principle:
I can not confirm with either 3.3.2 or 3.4.0b3 on Mac OSX, the insert of the link to the file works without crashing. Could you try with the latest beta for Windows and see if you still have the problem ? Perhaps this is a Windows specific problem ?
More info required.
Thank you for your answer and your tests.
I tested the latest pre-release available yet, buildid=300m103(Build:4) and i got the same problem (with XP).
I insist that the crash occurs after clicking on the the button : "Target in document"
I'm curious: could you specify which objects potentially target of a link are displayed in the window (forms, reports, queries, tables) ?
Nota : This crash has been reproduced (email@example.com) by others with XP, Windows 7
So you may be right, perhaps this is a Windows specific problem ?
Ah, OK, I misunderstood, I just inserted a link to the ODB document, without choosing a target.
When I choose a target, I get an error message in a dialog that says "Can not open document", then a small pause before the cursor switches to the famous Mac "beach ball" indicating a hung app, then LibO crashes, and Apple trace manager appears.
I am enclosing stacktrace and confirming.
This should be added to the list of most annoying bugs for the 3.4 release.

apple stacktrace for crash after inserting hyperlink to ODB document and then choosing target
I will need to test this on beta4, but haven't had time to download yet.
Changing platform to all.
Note that this also causes the following apps to crash :
- NeoOffice 3.1.2 patch7
- OpenOffice.org 3.2.1
- OOo-dev 3.4.0 beta1
Confirming also on 3.4b4.
Corrected bug title.
reproduced it on xp too, btw same in OOo m106
There are some ongoing tests on the French user list with respect to similar buggy behaviour, and it may be that this bug will extend to more than just inserting links to ODB files, but any file in general. If they are confirmed, I will adjust the title accordingly.
I reproduced the bug with Windows 7.

The problem discussed on [fr-discuss] does not occur on XP, vista and seven only.
Long life to LibreOffice. JBF
I don't agree, the problem occurs also under Windows XP. Already exists with LibO331.
I modified Status to Assigned due to facts.
I modified Status to New due to facts.
Fixed, and sent a patch to the mailing list for review.
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
