Description Bringfried Stecklum 2013-07-30 14:25:38 UTC
After today's update to 4.1, soffice crashes when the extension manager is checking for updates. This is the corresponding syslog entry

dp_gui_updatedi[12231]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f4b9cee7b92 sp 0000000044afd890 error 4 in libucpdav1.so[7f4b9cec2000+62000]

This did not happen with the previous RC version.

It very well could be, hard to be certain with just one line debug output, but the above fix is very plausible for that. Lets assume that it is and see if we can still get that fix into 4.1.1. Pushed to gerrit for review.
