Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2013-05-11 11:09:37 UTC
This patch allows me to open Bibliography but perhaps it's completely wrong because it only masks the bug:

diff --git a/forms/source/component/ListBox.cxx b/forms/source/component/ListBox.cxx

             ValueList aValues( impl_getValues() );
             assert( m_nConvertedBoundValuesType == getValueType());
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2013-05-11 11:27:03 UTC
Just some investigations I made before the patch:
I runned gdb and noticed that "m_nConvertedBoundValuesType" has random value (should it be initialized to fix value, 0 or something else?). Then I gave a look to "impl_getValues" method. (line 1036 of forms/source/component/ListBox.cxx)

"m_aConvertedBoundValues" and "m_aBoundValues" are empty so we go to line 1049:
Sequence< OUString > aStringItems( getStringItemList() );
but getStringItemList is empty too
Anyway in this part, "m_nConvertedBoundValuesType" doesn't seem to be changed too. So when come back to OListBoxModel::translateDbValueToControlValue, the assert can't succeed.

I do not reproduce the crash under Xubuntu 12.04 x86-64 neither with LibreOffice, nor LO Bibliography database opens as expected.

Best regards. JBF

Happens only in debug builds.
