File name says it all. -- Marc

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load a particular .odg file with LibreOffice closed (double-click on file)
2. LibreOffice will try to load the file, but close instead of load it

3. Alternatively, start LibreOffice
4. Try to open .odg file
5. LibreOffice will not load file and remain on empty page

Expected behavior:

Should open file instead of crashing or remaining on a blank page. It crashes the 4.0.x branch BUT works fine on our new 4.1.x branch.

This topic was discussed on the user list, introduced by a user and I confirmed it was indeed crashing . See [http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.documentfoundation.libreoffice.user/30003]

Operating System: All
Version: release

No crash for me but it doesn't open with 4.0.4 opens fine with 4.1 


In general we'd like more info when someone is reporting someone else's bug - and we'd prefer the actual reporter to report so they can answer these types of questions directly - examples include:

How was the file made? LibreOffice (if so what version?), openoffice (if so what version?), some other software (if so what software, what version)

What OS is experiencing the crash? Like I said, for me no crash, just doesn't open, LibreOffice continues to work fine

Did it work on previous versions of 4, or any other version for that matter prior to 4.1 for reporter? 

Also it's good for users to get a bugzilla account and get comfortable with our system so that they can report future problems - else they start thinking they can just report on the ML and get action - which is not the case - QA rarely monitors the list and we don't want users getting false expectations

That being said because I can confirm it won't open on some versions of 4 I went ahead and bibisected - since it's been fixed someone will need to cherry pick the fix for 4.0 release

Thanks Marc for reporting - wasn't trying to lecture you as I obviously know that you're a contributor to the project - just trying to make sure that QA gets what they need and that users learn how to do things the right way instead of bugs through ML - which I see occasionally but I tend not to do more than say "you should report this on FDO" and link to the how to report a bug wiki.
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2013-07-29 04:49:37 UTC
@Thorsten - can you use the bibisect to try to figure out what patch fixed it on 4.1 and see if we can backport it to the 4.0 branch?
Comment 3 Marc Pare 2013-07-29 06:35:56 UTC
The file was not sent in by the original reporter on the mailing list but another user sent me a file but did not want to be involved with the bug reporting. No idea why.
