ppt file that make Impress crash

I receive some presentation in ppt format and impress crash when reaching some slides. This occurs with either the 3.6 version and the 4. 0 version and is reproducible with the same ppt document. 
This is not occurring opening the same document with IBM Symphony which is OpenOffice based application.
There is no clear message in a command line (IO error) and Dr Konqi don't show me any report trace to send. 
I've succeeded to identify the exact slide that make Impress crash and send it as attachment to this bug.

Sorry, does not crash for me neither in master nor 4-0 - except from loading and starting the slideshow, anything else I need to do?

Could you try to obtain a stacktrace of the crash, with your original presentation, as described here:

Seems to be linked to my installation. I put the backtrace and strace as attachnement. To understant my configuration, I'm on a RedHat systeme 6.3. I've created a dedicated partition for home and when my root partition has came full, i've moved the opt directory to the home partition and created a symlink beetween /opt and /home/opt). In the backtrace, I see everything like /home/opt.

Looks suspiciously like bug 60719 then. There should be nightly builds available from e.g.


for verification.

Well, I've tried with last alpha build but it doesn't solve my issue. But what I have discovered is that it was not crashing when opening the document using my root user. So I have deleted my config directory and everything is working fine now. I don't know what was corrupted in my previous config.
