test document which crashes LO 4.2
Steps to reproduce:
1/ open the test document in Impress version 220.127.116.11
2/ select and copy the typographic quote at the end of the texte in "L'apostrophe"
3/ move the cursor somewhere in the text
5/ type ' (single quote) in the search field and ctrl+V in the replace field
6/ hit search button , the hit replace button
7/ hit replace button until the end of the file
==> crash when search & replace comes at the end
Crash has been reproduced on MS-Windows and Ubuntu (French QA mailing-list)
It seems that some other special characters trigger the crash.
Best regards. JBF
It's much worse than reported here:
Ctrl + h
search for the letter a
replace with es
do replace over and over until it reaches the end, results in a crash
Ubuntu 13.10 Version 18.104.22.168
No crash with 22.214.171.124
Thorsten - you want this one?
Importance should be highest if it is a MAB.
Maybe this bug and bug 73904 have the same root cause. Both describe a crash when the end of the file is reached.
Best regards. JBF
confirmed with latest 126.96.36.199 under Seven x64

As comment 4 mentioned, this still affects 188.8.131.52, which is now an official release...
It does indeed look like this bug is related to bug 73904. Also, it appears that both bugs affect both Draw and Impress.
To sum up, Using Find, Find & Replace, or Spell check in either Draw or Impress will cause LO to crash when it searches again from the beginning of the document.
Yeah - a bibisect would be nice on this one. Adding whiteboard status. This is why 4.2.0 is for people who want cutting edge vs. completely stable ;) For those people definitely stick with 4.1 series a bit longer
regression according to comment #2
