Opening the Stylist and right click on a paragraph style name leads to the same effect. Sophie
Comment 3 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-04-29 21:03:26 UTC
No complete freeze for me with my own build, but an empty paragraph dialog and an error message box "std::bad_alloc". Master quit when I click the OK button of the error message box.
Same error message box when I try to modify a paragraph style from the Stylist.

Best regards. JBF

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday (1e5b495a882493a81cc82ee34e3339b071bc162d), I can reproduce this bug.

I noticed that I can get the paragraph dialog normally when there's no text at all.

Lubos: Noticing this commit, http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=f1b2261cef7c9996af60f8902e9c0db4bbf896ac, I thought you might be interested in this bugtracker.
I haven't tested yet but I think it should make it since it corresponds exactly to the problematic line from the bt I had attached.
Comment 8 Luboš Luňák 2014-05-01 06:22:39 UTC
Yes, that's the same problem.
