I'm using Windows 7 with libre office. When I type in English it types without any problem.
When I type in Tamil or even when I copy paste Tamil script from internet (ta.wikipedia.org) LibreOffice crashes. When I start the libre office again it invokes the recovery but it has not recovered any of the texts which I typed so far.
I'm not sure this occures for other Indic languages too. I observed same behavior in spreadsheet and other applications too.
copied following text from window's crash report

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC2 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:302)]". Steps to reproduce:
1. Start LibO, open new WRITER document from start Center
2. open Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aceh_Sultanate>
3. On Wiki page under Languages click "தமிழ்" (third from bottom) what
will open the Tamil page
4. Mark first text paragraph (not inclucing heading, starting line containing
5. <Control+c> for copy
6. change to new WRITER document
7. <Control+v> for paste
Expected: text appears
Actual: LibO stops responding, has to be killed by system task manager
Crash does not happen for any single word, copy/paste only first word of paragraph does not crash.
Longer text and combination Tamil / English crashes
Same problem in CALC
Any Idea who could proceed this problem?
Pasted text looks cruelly damaged with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.3 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:301 Tag 220.127.116.11)]", but no crash, so regression!
I followed the same steps on Windows 8 dev preview with 3.4.3 and it worked with out any huzzle.
Something to do with Win 7 only?
Still [Reproducible] with Server installation of Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [(Build ID: 6b0de40-0bc4ff4-ca7e6f5-9125509-ce71330)]" (111111) when I copy/paste the paragraph starting with "அச்சே சுல்தானகம் (Aceh Sultanate,"
Can you help? Seems WIN specific.

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.
That sounds as if WIN LibO is more or less unusable for Tamil texts?
This problem is a part of the more general "Bug 45355 - CRASH if characters in text of BENGALI, TIBETAN, MALAYALAM, MARATHI, NEPALI, TAMIL, TELUGU"
Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you find evidence that we have an independent issue here.
