Error log from OpenJDK

Hello all,
I hope, I got the right component and all ... ;) If not, feel free to change it. Thanks in advance :)

Do the following:
1. Start Calc
2. Choose "Date - Pivot Table - Create (in the Germanophone version on Debian Testing AMD64 the menu entry is called "Daten - Datenpilot - Erstellen")
3.  Choose "In LibreOffice registered data source" (in my version "In LibreOffice angemeldete Datenquelle") and press "OK"
4. Choose "Database" "Bibliography", "Data source" "biblio" under "Selection" (Auswahl) and press enter.

LO immediately crashes ... :( If I start LO from Konsole under KDE, I get the following
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007ff8b7456c2b, pid=3594, tid=140706789226240

Hi thackert,

Would you also help attach your backtrace:

Comment 2 Yifan Jiang 2011-05-26 02:07:33 UTC
I met crash only after some subsequent operations:

The Pivot table can be created successfully, but when clicking the 'sorting list' area ( see attached picture ) in pivot table will cause Calc crash.

Not sure it is the same problem of reported. But still thanks Kohei to have a review :)

Forgot to mention the build I was using: 3.4 rc1 /SLED 11 sp1 i586.

And I didn't see the problem on Novell build. Probably a regression.
Comment 6 Thomas Hackert 2011-05-26 10:00:00 UTC
Hello Yifan,
thank you for your interest in this bug :)
I have tried to reproduce this bug on my system (Debian Testing AMD64) with
LibreOffice 3.4.0 
OOO340m1 (Build:12)
, but cannot reproduce it anymore. So it seems, that this bug is fixed (thanks to everyone involved :) ). And so I am not able to produce a backtrace, sorry ... :(
P.S.: Should I set this issue to "RESOLVED"?
Comment 7 Kohei Yoshida 2011-06-02 07:49:03 UTC
Assuming that the crash on field popup window is still present, I'd like to look into this for 3.4.1.
Comment 8 Kohei Yoshida 2011-06-10 08:32:26 UTC
So, I've already fixed the original crasher in another bug I think.  But it's still a bit unstable when you open a document with pivot table to a non-existing database.  I need to look into this.
Comment 9 Kohei Yoshida 2011-06-10 08:33:47 UTC
Changing the title.
Comment 10 Kohei Yoshida 2011-06-10 10:17:21 UTC
Fix on master (though I accidentally used wrong bugzilla ID...)

I'll send a request for review to the list shortly.
Comment 11 Kohei Yoshida 2011-06-10 13:03:27 UTC
This is now fixed in 3.4.1.
