Description DV 2011-04-27 07:31:09 UTC
Created attachment 46123 [details]
Image of unwanted hyperlinking of a word. 

When some specific words are typed -- so far I could identify "seem" and "seen", particularly if they are typed more than once, they are automatically converted into a web hyperlink having "smb:///" as target. 

If the relevant words ("seen" or "seem") are the first and only ones of a new file, the whole program crashes due to an "unexpected error". 

To reproduce it open a new blank file and repeatedly type "seem" or "seen".

Please find attached image with screen visualization. 

The Windows version is XP.

Yes, I believe they are exactly the same bug. I was not able to find that in my search because of the description referring to underline, instead of hyperlinking. 

Thus, "sick" should be added to the list of words triggering the bug. 

This is my first bug report, should I merge this with 36615 and, if yes, how?

List of words (or, more precisely, letter combinations) triggering the bug: "seen", "seem", "seam", "sick", "sion", "sean", "seon", "seol", "siam", "seal", "sial".  

So it seems that "s" + "e" or "i" + any two letters triggers a shortcut for the creation of hyperlinks.
