Description emilio.recio 2013-09-12 16:50:19 UTC
Don't know quite where this goes, but:
1) open an xls file in calc
2) file -> save as...
3) hover over the dialog box's shortcuts

I have smb:// and sftp:// shortcuts in the dialog box. I have various mounted filesystems (webdav, luks, etc). I am NOT accessing or even attempting to save to any of the mounted filesystems or shortcuts. 

No other application exhibits a crash when saving as. Need to get this resolved asap for work, so switching to alternative app for now. Please help!!

Note, that the same happens on the Open dialog if you already have a document open. I cannot reproduce issue with open dialog if there are no documents open.

Emilio: in addition to what Tommy27 indicated, could you try to retrieve an useful backtrace by following this link? (
Comment 4 emilio.recio 2013-09-16 15:25:39 UTC
So I installed the gdb package and ran the backtrace... it has been attached to this bug report. However, the terminal output is as follows the moment I went "File -> Open..." with no files open:

Comment 6 emilio.recio 2013-09-16 15:42:37 UTC
Please note, that I unmounted all of my "non-traditional" filesystems (wdfs, sshfs, etc) to no avail. File -> Open crashes too with no file open. It has previously been on "Save As..." as well when you already had a file open.
Comment 7 emilio.recio 2013-09-16 15:48:03 UTC
It also seems to be when I put my mouse into the file listings. If I have my mouse anywhere else it stays up. For example, when I move my mouse into the toolbar area, or the OK/Cancel, or filename area it doesn't crash. However, it's repeatable if I move the mouse over either the a) directory listing area or b) the shortcuts to the left. That's why I thought it may have been a mounted filesystem issue; with everything unmounted, I can't possibly figure out what it is.
Comment 8 Julien Nabet 2013-09-16 19:54:48 UTC
Thank you Emilio for your feedback, I put it as NEW.

Lubos: one for you? (bt shows kde4 + qt part).
Comment 9 emilio.recio 2013-09-23 14:35:19 UTC
What's the status of this request? I haven't been able to use libreoffice for three weeks or so. Downloading open office for now.

Michael: I put you in cc just in case you've already seen this kind of error before.
Comment 11 Michael Meeks 2013-09-24 12:28:57 UTC
Hmm - I guess we need some Qt / KDE guy with the time to look into this sort of stuff; no idea if Lubos has the time & interest ? :-)
Comment 12 Andy 2013-09-25 14:53:13 UTC
I have been frequently experiencing this bug also, since upgrading to LO  Fine previously (4.0.2.?).  
Running KDE/LO under Kubuntu Raring with latest updates applied.  No KDE updates in the meantime? So appears to be LO related.

Running Ext4 on the HDD so nothing wierd there.  HDD is the only system mounted at the time.

Am using Writer when it happens (Calc for Emilio).
Occurred in the last case when I had *only* pressed the "Save As" button. So you do not even have to move the mouse in the KDE file dialog listings (as per Emilio).

GDB gives the same error:
"Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xaf15a807 in QTransform::type() const () from /usr/lib/i386-linux-

Running LO from the terminal outputs similar Op Code issues 
"X Error: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) 8
  Major opcode: 42 (X_SetInputFocus)
  Resource id:  0x5e02b43"

In the same LO session, terminal also gave this error a few times (might be related/useful?):
"/org/freedesktop/UDisks2/drives/WDC_WD7500BPKT_00PK4T0_WD_WXD1A11V3246" : 
property "Device" does not exist".  

Makes using LO dangerous as you cannot Save As files reliably.

Comment 13 emilio.recio 2013-09-26 14:04:28 UTC
* Just upgraded and it still exists in btw
Comment 14 Julien Nabet 2013-09-26 14:08:45 UTC
Andy, Emilio: Thank you for the feedback. Following your last comments, I increase the importance.
Comment 15 Maxim Monastirsky 2013-10-10 21:51:03 UTC
Symptoms & backtrace look very similar to what we already have at Bug 69002, so closing as a duplicate.
