This is an example file, which opens corectly in LO, but is desroyed after saving.

Problem description: 

Resaving original RTF file (produced in Word) to RTF format destroys file and causes LibreOffice Writer to crash on opening this file.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice (RC1) German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 21cb047-d7e6025-9ba54fc-b4a51a8-f42372b] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
After save as Example_353.rtf the new document is much smaller (36kB lost), and MS WORD viewer indicates a Table problem in the dew document.

In LibO 333 there was a bug (inherited from OOo) that placed contents "Паллета 1 из 1" 1 cell to the left during fileopen. That problem is fixed, but exactly the cell with "Паллета 1 из 1" seems to be involved into the problem.

May be the roots of the problem are already in FILEOPEN, it seems that LibO has some problems with the RTF code. After having opened the original sample document and clicking alternating into most bottom cells with "Адрес доставки:  г. Город, Проспект пр., д. 19е"  and "Паллета 1 из 1", I see strange reactions in Navigator, Tables 2 and 3 are interchanging their places for a moment; and I believe there are only 2 tables in the document?

I will split away the FILEOPEN CRASH problem.

Please set Status to ASSIGNED and add yourself to "Assigned To" if you accept this Bug.

The bug still exists in LO 3.5.3
Comment 6 Ronildo Matsuura 2012-08-07 13:10:50 UTC
I am having the same problem! I'm tested v3.5.4, v.3.5.5 and v3.6.0.4rc
Comment 7 Julien Nabet 2012-10-19 22:39:58 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with 3.5 sources updated yesterday, I don't reproduce the problem.
Aaron/Rainer: could you give a try to 3.5.6 and tell if it's still reproduceable? (in this case, it could be a Windows only bug)
