Description Matt Walker 2013-04-05 01:36:39 UTC
I don't know what it is about this document https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/documents/pci_saq_a_v2.doc (the payment card industry self assessment questionaire) but opening it and then copying all of its contents into a new document will crash the application - very consistently on my machine.

Upon restarting libre office it can usually recover the new document in it's entirety. Sometimes only to crash randomly later on.

Special things about the PCI document:
- It is write only except for form data
-- It doesn't appear to be using section protection -- or at least the Format->Sections menu item is grayed out.

I can reproduce a crash using Linux Mint 14 with LibreOffice 4.0.2.2.

Steps:
* Open file in Startcenter or File > Open
* Once file is loaded select all (ctrl+A)
* Copy (ctrl+c)
* Open new text document (File > New)
* Paste (ctrl+p)

Behavior: crash

When trying to do a backtrace using LibreOffice Version: 4.1.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 7e7302730454aa417f2711024e3a5d9d953add6 it crashes already on step 1 (open file). See backtrace log.

Terminal output during backtrace:
warn:sfx2.dialog:5824:1:sfx2/source/dialog/filtergrouping.cxx:361: already have an element for WordPerfect
warn:sfx2.dialog:5824:1:sfx2/source/dialog/filtergrouping.cxx:361: already have an element for writerweb8_writer_template

warn:legacy.osl:5824:1:sw/inc/swrect.hxx:299: SVRect() without Width or Height
... 

(the legacy.osl warning is displayed about 15 times).

Marking bug as NEW.

The document as-is is just too large to effectively debug the problem. Needed is a volunteer with msoffice to cut down the source document to the smallest part that reproduces the problem. i.e. delete the first half and see if the problem persists, if so repeat, if not delete the other half and keep going until its a small little source document and then we're in business.
