I can confirm the exact same problem in 3.4.5 FINAL for Mac (OSX 10.7.2).

Working with an .fodt file in this case:

Highlight text to change case.

Format > Change Case > any option

Results in crash to desktop, every time.

I can confirm the same behaviour in 3.5 beta 3, OS X 10.6.8.

Just create a new document, write something, choose any change case menu entry and get a crash.

I'm using the Spanish language version.

I can confirm this with 3.5 RC 1 under Mac OS 10.6.8.

This bug was also present under 3.3, but not on 3.4, so I'll risk saying it's a regression.

The crash will occur with no matter what document type (I've tried odt, doc and docx) and with no matter what option of "change case", accessed by the menu Format > Change Case or simply by the right-click menu.

(Apparently this bug is an old-duplicate https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37044)

Confirmed in 3.5 final

LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3 
Build ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735

I confirm everything Fabio Bignon says.

Marked as a duplicate, I am going to write a longer message @ the other bug report
