OK with  Server Installation of  "LibreOffice  English UI/ German Locale [Build-ID:  1e73405] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)  {tinderbox: Win-x86@9, pull time 2012-10-05 15:31:15}, so REGRESSION
Comment 1 Julien Nabet 2012-10-06 07:56:53 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I don't reproduce the pb with any of 3 LO applications.

Roman: would you have a little time to test on MacOs to know if it's a specific Windows bug?
Comment 2 Stephan van den Akker 2012-10-06 09:37:30 UTC
On openSuSE 12.2 (i686) with LO-master version (Build ID: 3ec5db6)
(pulled 5 October 2012 20:30 CEST) this bug can not be reproduced.
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-10-06 14:10:16 UTC
[Reproducible] with Server-installation of Master "3.7.0.alpha0+  – ENGLISH UI [Build ID: b255de8]" {tinderbox: Win-x86@16, pull time 2012-10-06 09:31:39} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/LOdev/3

So I think this is NEW / WIN only

I saw that oyu fixed "Bug 40345 - [EDITING] SwAnchoredObject::GetAnchorFrm crash on loading styles from other document"; can you help here, too? Please set Status to ASSIGNED and add yourself to "Assigned To" if you accept this Bug or forward the Bug if it's not your turf.

Yes, seems Windows only: I can NOT reproduce this crash on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Intel) with LOdev (Build ID: dd11a1e; pull time: 2012-10-04 12.52.50). For me, the correct dialog window appears; at the moment, it has a strange look (far too wide), but I hope Caolán will improve this soon ;-).
Comment 5 Michael Meeks 2012-10-08 09:25:52 UTC
Any chance of a windows stack trace for this one ? 3.7 regressions are bad :-)

ATM I have my own debug build with symbols and source code for 3.5.x branch only.

Thanks for that:

Not terribly useful sadly; it crashed in SetLanguageList - somewhere, but it's a big method, and it's hard to know what's up there.

Caolan - any thoughts on this master regression ? :-)
Comment 8 Michael Meeks 2012-10-08 15:53:17 UTC
Oh - and thanks anyhow for trying bfoman - much appreciated :-)
Comment 9 Caolán McNamara 2012-10-08 19:06:23 UTC
This is almost certainly my bug, but how is anyone managing to install a windows version for testing given bug 55290 ?
Comment 10 Caolán McNamara 2012-10-12 09:41:51 UTC
