Example presentation crashing X

Problem description: 

I've upgraded my laptop from Mandriva 2010.2 to Mageia 2 and since I have problems with Impress, I didn't had for years. The move was then from openOffice.org 3.2.1 to LibreOffice 3.5.5 or upstream which exhibits the same issue

Steps to reproduce:
1. /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/soffice presentation.odp
2. depending on the pres, X crashing or just libreoffice crashing

Attached is a first presentation which is crashing X. I can provide others if this is not sufficient all produced with the 3.2.1 version of openoffice.org

On some presentation, they load, and LO crashes when trying to scroll through the slides (seems some backgroud picture is causing the pb, but it's difficult to be sure.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: release
Last worked in: Master old  -3.6

Can't reproduce, using LibreOffice rc2 with Linux Mint 14 x64.

I'm not convinced this will resolve the problem, but is it possible to reset your User Profile following https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resetting_the_user_profile ?

Thanks for testing,

Can't reproduce. Tested on 4.0rc2 and version on Ubuntu 12.10. All is fine here.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2013-02-02 09:53:51 UTC
did you install any specific LO extensions? If yes could, you disable then and try again?
did you install any specific fonts? Could you uninstall these for the test?
what's your Java version?

Could you try to retrieve a backtrace? (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bug_Report#How_to_get_a_backtrace_.28on_Linux.29)

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for filing - sadly, it's not reproducible here either; at least with 4.0 and 4.1 (master). Clearly if the X server is crashing - then at least one part of the bug is not in LibreOffice - X should never crash with a bad client.

I appreciate the problems debugging that :-) if you have a moment to launch gdb from a remote ssh sometime and attach it to libreoffice and/or X - while loading that slideshow, it'd be great to get a trace; in the meantime closing notourbug.

Hope all's well at HP otherwise :-)

Thanks !

Sorry to come back late o that. Indeed it seems I've not been able to reproduce this problem using 4.0 upstream that I downloaded following suggestions in the bug report. As I'm migrating more and more to that version I'l lsee whether older pres are opening without issue, and will potentially reopen with more debugging info if that happens again.

Thanks for al lyour support !
