Description OfficeUser 2013-07-30 19:28:47 UTC
This happens from time to time when closing LibreOffice after working
with the experimental Sidebar enabled.

See attached Windows screen shot.

I will ad a Linux screen shot of similar crash as soon as I see it again.

In total I have seen the problem about 5 to 10 times.

Thanks for reporting!

I'm using the sidebar for quite a time too, and can not confirm these crashes on Windows 8, Mac OSX 10.8.4 and Linux Mint 15 x64. So it might be interesting to have a backtrace. Although you don't have a special build to do backtraces, it'll reveal hopefully some helpful information what goes wrong. Please see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugReport/Debug_Information#GNU.2FLinux:_How_to_get_a_backtrace

After doing that, please attach the backtrace log to the bug report.

Thanks for your time to make LibreOffice a better product!

I have installed LibreOffice manually with the deb package provided on the LibreOffice homepage.

If I install "libreoffice-dbg" from the Ubuntu repositories doesn't it install an old LibreOffice out of the Ubuntu repositories?

Seems to be fixed in
Build ID: 7e4286b58adc75a14f6d83f53a03b6c11fa2903

==> CLosing.
Comment 6 OfficeUser 2013-08-28 13:57:41 UTC

Version is still affected.
Comment 7 OfficeUser 2013-09-03 07:09:56 UTC
Additional information:

Both reported crashes from Linux and windows are from totally different machines. So it cannot really be related to special environment.
Comment 8 Maxim Monastirsky 2014-01-07 19:32:10 UTC
Setting back to NEEDINFO, since the requested (in comment 3) information not provided.
Comment 9 tommy27 2014-01-08 21:22:57 UTC
I suggest retesting with

moreover is the crash just specific to Writer, Calc or to all LibO suite applications?
Comment 10 tommy27 2014-01-09 19:57:32 UTC
please, specify exactly the O/S versions you reproduce the bug (i.e WinXp, Win7, 32 or 64bit etc. etc)
Comment 11 OfficeUser 2014-02-11 19:23:23 UTC
At the moment it looks like Version is not affected. I will watch it.

I will close the bug in about one or two weeks if I cannot see this crash anymore. If the problem persists I will provide you more information.
Comment 12 OfficeUser 2014-02-18 08:02:05 UTC
Cannot reproduce anymore with Version

==> Closing.
