Comment 1 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-05-07 22:04:26 UTC
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice (RC2) German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) and 3.4.5.

Still a problem with parallel installation of Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 35ec153]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast, pull time 2012-05-02 06:53:41)

Worked fine with LibO 3.3.3, so Regression

Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2012-07-05 13:42:43 UTC
looks like an apparent loop in the styles, parent of a given style is itself.

caolanm->vmiklos: worth cherry-picking this fix to 3-5/3-6 ?
