Log file for hang in LOdev 2012-09-30, on Mac OS X 10.6.8

When I try to access the “Insert Break” dialog window via “Insert > Manual Break...”, LOdev hangs indefinitely.

I have observed this in the LOdev build:
  LOdev, build ID: 3f84462b, pull time: 2012-09-30 06:38:06

The problem is NOT present in this build:
  LOdev, build ID: 30d33b1,  pull time: 2012-09-27 04:27:30

So a regression in a 3 days timeframe; maybe related to the (cool!) new WidgetLayout -- did something go wrong in the conversion? Other dialogs touched by the conversion (Word count, “Paragraph”, etc.) are still accessible.

Steps to reproduce:
0) Rename your user profile folder, in order to preclude any influence
   of special settings etc.
1) Start LOdev;
   -> The Start Center window appears.
2) Click on the “Text Document” button;
   -> A new, empty Writer window opens.
3) Select “Insert > Manual Break...” from the menu bar;
   -> expected result: the “Insert Break” dialog window opens;
   -> actual result: LOdev hangs indefinitely.

NB: No Mac OS Accessibility options or related utilities activated!

I attach the log file created by Mac OS X when I had to force-quit LOdev. To me, the end of the stack trace:
  5 Window::ImplGrabFocus(unsigned short) + 335 (in libvcllo.dylib) [0x237399f]
  4 Window::ImplGrabFocus(unsigned short) + 341 (in libvcllo.dylib) [0x23739a5]
  2 Window::ImplGrabFocus(unsigned short) + 353 (in libvcllo.dylib) [0x23739b1]
  2 Window::ImplGrabFocus(unsigned short) + 351 (in libvcllo.dylib) [0x23739af]
looks like some infinite recursion, but the developers will know better ;-)

For the sake of completeness --
Hang still present in the latest Mac OS master build:
  LOdev, build ID: b966a09, pull time: 2012-10-01 23:33:15

Confirmed on Linux as well, I saw that yesterday with commit d83de4b1a93ba7ed7bc3243073be3de96a44bfa9 and wasn't sure if it's a local problem. ;-)

Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2012-10-02 12:26:20 UTC
that should fix it
Comment 6 Roman Eisele 2012-10-04 15:43:16 UTC
@ Caolán: Thank you very much for fixing this so fast!

VERIFIED as FIXED with LOdev (Build ID: dd11a1e, pull time: 2012-10-04 12:52:50) on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Intel).

“Insert Break” dialog works again as before. Not only the crash is fixed, I have also tried all possible settings, and everything is fine. Great!
