This is the odf file which cause crashing of LibO V3.6

Problem description:

The attached odf-file created with LibreOffice V3.5 causes crashing LibreOffice Writer V3.6.x.

This document has two graphics, created in LibO Draw.
Behind the first drawing is a white box.
After deleting this box and the drawing in LibO V3.5 creates a file, which is readable in LibreOffice Writer V3.6 !
The crash must have something to do with the drawing inside this document!

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached document in LibreOffice V3.5 works perfect.
2. Open the same document in V3.6 crashes LibreOffice!

I believe this is a blocker bug!
Operating System: All
Last worked in: release

I could not reproduce the crash on LO Windows Vista 32bit. The document opens and look correct as far as I can tell.

NOT [Reproducible] with sample "2012-11-27 21:36 UTC, starmatz71@yahoo.de " and with  "LibreOffice rc" German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: a9a0717] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).

I can open the sample document with double click from WIN File Explorere without problems, same from LibO Files dialog.

The crash occures with two WindowsXP SP3 Systems (Professional and Home Edition).
I had tried it in Windows 7 64-Bit (Professional, German) and the file did not crash LibO.

All PCs are running LibreOffice V3.6.3.2!

I'd tried to open the file in Ubuntu 12.10 with LibreOffice V3.6.2.2 and it does not crash.

I can also open this file with Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1, LibO 3.3.4, LibO3.4.6 and LibO3.5.7 on WinXP.

This crash should only happens on WinXP with LibreOffice 3.6!

Can someone confirm this?

I cannot tell you how the drawing is created because i drew it with OpenOffice 3.x some time ago. The only thing i did is I draw a white box behind the drawing.
After this i copy and past it into the textfile with LibO 3.5.x

After Updating to LibO3.6.3.2 i want to edit the file but LibO crashes.
After some experiments and tests i remove the drawing in LibO3.5, save the file and open it with LibO3.6 and it loads without any crash.

Antialiasing and hardware acceleration doesn't has any influence in the behavior of the crash. Experimental features are always disabled.

Confirmed on LO Windows XP Professional SP3 (32bit)

This bug seems to occur ONLY on Windows XP. It does not seem to happen on Vista, Win7 or Linux.
Comment 7 starmatz71 2013-02-04 22:03:17 UTC
I can confirm, that this bug is gone in LibreOffice V4.0.0.3.

Unfortunately the bug is still present in LibreOffice V3.6.5.3.

If you affected by this crash you can update to LibO V4.0.x as a workaround.

(WindowsXP SP3 32Bit)
