Description Christophe Beugnet 2012-12-12 21:46:11 UTC
Context :
- LibreOffice : multiple versions
- client : Win7
- servers :
   - probably Windows when at work
   - Debian Linux testing, up to date when at home

(I'll try to give precise version numbers in an update)

Often, if not every-time, LibreOffice crashes when saving a document (even a small one) to a shared directory.
So far, I can tell that it do not occur when the client runs Linux.
But it occur in the context described above.

Then, when crashing, the doc is saved for recovery, and L.O. exits.
When launched again, the document is recovered, with its latests modifications.
Then again, when trying to save, crash, save for recovery, re-launch, ok, etc.
Comment 1 Christophe Beugnet 2013-10-29 19:07:30 UTC
I still have this bug.

- client : Win7 + L.O.
- server : the same Debian Testing : 3.10-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.11-1 (2013-09-10) x86_64 GNU/Linux

*) Crash case : launch L.O. / create a new document / try to save to a shared directory ==> L.O. is freezed

*) No crash case : open an existing document on a network drive / work on it / save ==> OK

*) New crash case : same as first, but also occurs on local drives.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
