Problem description: In all components (writer, calc, impress, base) Tools, Options crashes program. In LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)This product was supplied by The Document Foundation, Debian and Ubuntu. Description: Ubuntu 11.04, Release: 11.04, Codename: natty
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Writer,
2. select tools,
3. then options
Current behavior: Crash
Expected behavior: well, ... I would have thought open the tools options menu.
Platform (if different from the browser): Ubuntu 11.04
Browser: Ubuntu/11.04 Chromium/18.0.1025.151
Problem solved with a complete wipe (using Synaptics package manager) and re-install. Could this have been due to an old version hanging around or low disk space?
Anyway - problem solved
It could be another "Incorrect behavior using existing User Profile for upgrade".

"Bug 50986 - CRASH in menu Tools - Options" sounds similar, but currently only discussed as a WIN problem.
I do not know "Synaptics package manager", does that also clean the User Profile?
Did your clean up touch the user profile?
Concerning your question in Bug 43489#10
This one with an individual User Profile problem (currently I am not sure whether it has to do with the profile) can not be a DUP of a tracker bug (as all the "Most Annoying 3.5 Bugs" are no DUPs of Bug 37361), but it might block that one. May be I should leave a hint in the QA-FAQ
I am having problems following the flow of this but I found that before using the Synaptics package manager there were old versions of the software that were on my machine. I was not able to determine whether these were the cause of the problem but getting rid of them and starting from a clean slate seemed to do the trick.
I should emphasize that while the machine is dual boot, this is not a Windows (WIN?) problem. I am not running Linux under Windows.
Synaptic is a computer program which is a GTK+ graphical user interface front-end to the Advanced Packaging Tool for the Debian package management system. Synaptic is usually used on systems based on deb packages but can also be used on systems based on RPM packages. It can be used to install, remove and upgrade software packages and to add repositories.
email@example.com: Since it works now for you and you can't reproduce the problem + you don't seem to have a backup of the profile you had, I put this tracker to RESOLVED/WORKSFORME
