Clicking on Insert menu when draw object selected hangs Writer and uncontrolling increases CPU and RAM
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open Writer
2) Create a Draw objecto (a line, a cirle, whatever)
3) With the object selected, click on Insert menu
The CPU will suddenly grow up to 100% and RAM will slowly grow until the system crashes.

On pc Debian x86-64 with 3.6 sources updated today, I don't reproduce this behaviour.
Could you rename your LO directory profile (see http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile)?
Do you have lo-menubar package installed? If yes, could you uninstall it for the test?
If you still reproduce the problem, you should give a try to a newer version (3.6.2).
Renaming the LO directory profile doesn't soves the problem
Uninstalling lo-menubar does.
I'd like keep on using lo-menubar
¿What should I do?
¿How do I update to 3.6.2? I've got libreoffice ppa enabled but I haven't got an update.
Michael: an idea of what we can propose here?
Pablo, could you please get valgrind log? It might help to locate the problem. The hints are at http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#How_to_get_a_valgrind_log_.28on_Linux.29
It is related to the LO Menubar extension => adding Ubuntu hacker into CC.
Anyway, it is related to 3rd-party extension and affecting only limited group of users => it should not block 3.6.3 release with many other useful fixes => lowering the severity a bit.
If it is a hang a gdb with debug symbols installed and: "thread apply all backtrace" would be the most useful thing I think.
All yours Bjoern :-)
lo-menubar is not LibreOffice, thus NOTOURBUG on this tracker. Note that lo-menubar is obsolete with quantal (which has a new implementation vendorpatched directly into LibreOffice) on Ubuntu.
This should be reported at Launchpad, if there are still issues on quantal. For precise this will be closed WONTFIX and lo-menubar is not part of the main repository.
