In our production environment we're using LibreOffice to convert odt files to pdf files. 
The attached file made the PDF export crash : 
libreoffice-server shuts down (soffice -accept...).

To reproduce the bug manually : open the attached file, don't scroll don't click, just go directly to the "Export as PDF option".

Backtrace log for PDF crash.

Reproduced on LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:12) for OpenSuse Linux.

I have also attached the backtrace log for the crash. Hopefully it is helpful for someone who may be working on this.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.1RC1 - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:103)]".

For me the reproducible condition for the crash is that preference "Export Boomarks" is selected.

Also crashes without picture (deleted)
No more crash after I additionally deleated first table row (containing "Une saine gestion".

Not a general problem, I create several such PDFs with WRITER every day.

LibO 3.3.0 based Portable version also crashes

OOo 3.4.1-dev (obsolete version) and 3.1.1 WIN do not crash

Thank your for your attention!

Any Idea?

Thanks for your attention guys ! 

I forgot to mention that to reproduce our workflow I only edited the file with OOo 3.3.0 (on ubuntu 10.10 x64) as the person who generated the bug uses OOo. 

And when I delete the picture with OOo (then save and try to reproduce as descripted in the first place) I don't reproduce the bug. 

Hope this helps. 
Thanks again!

new odt file (to reformat) for test

On pc Debian x86-64 with 3.5 branch updated today, I didn't reproduce the crash.

However, I hadn't the picture on the pdf so I tried to copy paste the table on a brand new file but had a crash. So I copied the content of the table (not the table), no crash and all was exported on the pdf. Now you just have to reformat.

I wonder if the crash is not linked with this :

I'll add a new attach after this one
