Description Yifan Jiang 2011-11-03 04:45:47 UTC
Platform: SLED 11 sp1 i586
Build:    SUSE Libreoffice 3.4.2 release


    1. Open the attached file "test.odp"

    2. Save it as "foo.odp", and keep the Libreoffice window open

    3. Reopen "test.odp"

    4. Save it as "bar.odp"

    5. Switch to the foo.odp LibO window and remove the big image in the slide 2

    6. Save "foo.odp"

    7. Switch to the "bar.odp" and do some modification, for example, remove
    any image in the slide 3

    8. Save "bar.odp"

    9. In the bar.odp LibO window, File->Reload


    - The image in the slide 2 of bar.odp will be missing magically, however I only removed that one from foo.odp.
[Extra Information]

    - The bug comes from Michael, suspecting image life cycle problem.

What a funny bug. I can confirm the bug under Ubuntu 10.10 with LibreOffice 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402) German help. After the procedure I closed the file and the programme and the reopened them: in slide 2 there is a frame in bar.odp which I don't see in foo.odp, see attached files.

This bug has not been touched by for a long time. 
Just confirming, is this bug still ASSIGNED?

Apologies for not having gotten around fixing this bug yet; unfortunately in future I'll have even less time at my disposal for this, so I'm freeing up ownership for other volunteers to take over.
