When I try to create a new style via right-click in the Styles and Formatting tab of the sidebar, Impress hangs with near-100% CPU usage.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open Impress
2) Open the Styles and Formatting tab on the sidebar
3a) Right-click on any existing style, or
3b) Right-click on empty area below existing styles
4) Choose "New..."
Expected result: dialog to create a new style appears.
Observed result: Impress hangs with nearly 100% CPU usage.
LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 (this version is absent from the above list), DEBs published by TDF.
Creating a new style in a similar way works in Writer, Calc and Draw.
Windows is also affected, tried with 188.8.131.52. Setting platform and version accordingly.
Thanks for reporting, but please report bugs with status UNCONFIRMED. They only should change to NEW until someone was able to reproduce this behavior. Thanks in advance.
But I can reproduce this behavior ;-) , tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 RC and LibreOffice Version: 220.127.116.11.beta2 Build ID: 1a27be92e320f97c20d581a69ef1c8b99ea9885d
Looks a critical bug to me.

Ah, sorry, I thought bugzilla would set the correct initial status by default. Apparently not :)
Not reproduce in LO 18.104.22.168 and LO 4.1.5+ Win 7 x64

Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.1 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
I investigated this bug:
It seems we should NOT have a new option in the Presentation Styles, because the standard template window (F11) does not show the "New" option when click with right mouse button for Presentation Styles.
I can "fix" the issue by adding a "bCanNew = sal_False" in the end of SfxCommonTemplateDialog_Impl::InvalidateBindings(this function is inside of file sfx2/source/dialog/templdlg.cxx), so it don't show the New options for the Presentation Style. But in this case, it does not show the New for Image Styles too...
So, where can I proceed here? I'll try to track how these bindings are created and set, and maybe I'll try to find the code of standard template window
Changed importance to reflect the new policy - Sophie

tested under Win7x64
LibO 22.214.171.124 hangs with both 3a and 3b steps so bug is still there unlike comment 4 says.
LibO 126.96.36.199alpha1+ (*)
doesn't hang with 3a and does nothing with 3b, anyway I'm not enough experienced with Impress style to tell if that behaviour is correct or not.
what do you think?
(*) Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha1+
Build ID: 0b03f7ed575838f90e6b1ebec3538a3a214f81fb
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:master, Time: 2014-04-30_02:30:23
still reproducible in 184.108.40.206
moving to mab4.2 list since 4.1.x is END OF LIFE
experienced user opinion about 4.3.x behaviour is welcome.
