Problem description: 

When try to "insert" either a copy or a link from the gallery, the program crashes. Drag'n'drop works fine though.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Open sidebar and go to the gallery tab
3. Right-click on any item in the list to insert
4. Choose "Insert" or "Link"
5. The program crashes

Current behavior:

Writer crashes when inserting/linking items from the gallery.

Expected behavior:

It must insert the item without a program crash
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: Master
Last worked in: release

Thank you for your bug report, I can reproduce this bug running LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: 1b3956717a60d6ac35b133d7b0a0f5eb55e9155 on Mac osx 10.8.4. 

This is a serious bug in the sidebar option.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2013-06-22 15:30:15 UTC
lucifer: how to enable sidebar? Do you reproduce this without using sidebar?
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I did "Insert/Picture/From file" and that was ok.
Comment 4 Julien Nabet 2013-06-22 15:43:16 UTC
Sorry for my last comment, I certainly misunderstood. Perhaps you meant "Tools/Gallery". Anyway, still don't know how to enable sidebar.
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2013-06-22 15:47:01 UTC
Ok I found the sidebar. (for those who were wondering too, it's Tools/Options/LibreOffice-Advanced-Enable experimental sidebar). I reproduced the crash.

I reproduced the crash, I attached console logs and bt.

Jan: I don't know who's the expert(s) sidebar expert (I checked https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/FindTheExpert) but by looking at commits about it, it seemed to me you might be one :-) One for you?

the old gallery thing doesn't crash here
Comment 9 Caolán McNamara 2013-07-01 14:05:27 UTC
with the old gallery open, the new one doesn't crash either :-)
