presentation file to reproduce with
After opening a .pptx file and copying some slides to a new presentation, LibreOffice crashed on starting the slide show. I have attached a minimal file that can be used to reproduce the issue.
64-bit Arch Linux with LibreOffice 188.8.131.52.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached presentation file.
2. Go to the slide sorter and copy the slides to clipboard.
3. Open a new empty presentation, and paste the slides to the end of the slide sorter, giving you 3 slides total.
4. Start presenting. (for me, in the mode that shows both the current and next slide on the screen)
5. Go to the next slide.
What should happen:
Libreoffice should show the next slide, and the slide after that (with text) in the next-slide-box.
Libreoffice keeps the next-slide-box empty, and shows a message-box with title "LibreOffice 4.2 - Fatal Error" and no content, except for the exception icon. On pressing OK it completely terminates.
Running with --backtrace:
I got no interesting output, just:
[Inferior 1 (process 27016) exited with code 0115]
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/gdbtrace:9: Error in sourced command file:
Other things that might be related:
- The presentation uses Calibri, a font I do not have. (I imported it from a .pptx file)
- The bullet characters show up as blocks, likely also a font thing.
I can confirm exactly the same using Version: 184.108.40.206

Bug is still present and 100% reproducible in 220.127.116.11.
Only happens for me on multihead, i.e. presenter console active
