File which contains macro which will pull data from all other files.
1. Download ZIP from this link: https://copy.com/jfGZSp3GP6Crmzsr
2. Extract it and you will find 2 folders, TEST-ods and TEST-xls
3. Rename TEST-ods to TEST and save it to root of C: (C:/TEST)
4. Download and run TEST PULL FILE.ods (you have to enable macro).
5. Run macro (Tools - Macro - Run macro and select that file macro).
Macro will generate filenames of all files in C:/TEST directory and formulas in columns B and C will pull data from those files.
LibreOffice crashes on 9th file. My guess is, memory leak.
Intel i3 2,75ghz , 3GB ram, LO 4.1.5 (or 4.1.4)
Tested also with portable version of 4.2 and it also crashes.
Now do everything from start, but use files from TEST-xls folder. Those files are 100% identical, except they were saved as xls.
TEST PULL FILE.ods will pull data from all 15 files without problems.
I gave you only 15 test files, which are 100% indentical except filename, but I usually do this with 160+ files. With xls it passes, but with ods it crashes.
I should mention that macro pulls file names ONLY from C:/TEST.
If you want to change this to something else so you can test on linux, you should edit macro and formulas in B and C columns to pull from different location.
Confirmed the crash on Windows 7 with 4.0.6, 4.1.6, 4.2.4, and 4.2.6. It is fine in 3.5.7, 3.6.7, 4.4.

how the error looks in LibO 4.2 before it crashes
Is this bug reproducible in Linux - if not bibisect is not possible and whiteboard status should be removed
Yes it wasnt possible to reproduce it in linux in 4.1.6 or 4.2.4, so bibisect was removed.
(This is an automated message.)
LibreOffice development currently prioritizes bugs with the so called MAB (most annoying bugs) -- as this bug has not run through that process (including writing a short rationale for this bug being a candidate and other who are watching the tracker bug silently approving that rationale etc.) its priority is set to high. Note this is effectively no change in the urgency assigned to this bug, as we are currently not making a difference between high and highest and severity is untouched.
You can find out more about MABs and how the process works by contacting libreoffice qa on irc:
The QA wiki page also gives you hints on how to get in contact with the team (if IRC fails you, your next best choice is the mailing list):
I was testing again on win 8.1, i5 processor, 8GB of RAM with 180 files on LibreOffice 126.96.36.199
It finishes process, but when I mark columns A:C and press CTRL+C (copy) LibreOffice hangs and crashes. Tried 3 times, 3 times it crashed.

I marked B1. Scrooled down to C180 (which took some time), then SHIFT+click on C180. Then CTRL+C for copy.
Then I pressed New spredsheet icon (first in toolbar) and bam... this error appears.
Sometimes it appears while I copy, sometimes when I try to create new spreadsheet to copy result to.
LibreOffice 4.4 - Fatal Error
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (notBibisectable)
I went to look at this problem today, but the original reproducer zip seems to be gone. Is there another copy of this anywhere, or another route to reproduce ?

Luckily, I keept ZIP stored somewhere.
Won't share link here since it's my private cloud, but sent you copy via e-mail.
This regression was introduced before branch 4.4, thus it can't be bibisected with the current bibisect repositories. Changing keyword 'notBibisectable' to 'preBibisect'
