This observation is from commit 48eccfb, fetched 2014-05-15 00:50 UTC,

Note well, for comparison, that I do not see the problem in commit
49dff05, fetched 2014-05-12 14:59 UTC.
This bug is less important than bug 78813 "Java core dump, segfault,
when creating table", because this one happens with an experimental
feature. However, a fix to this on may help that other by localizing
it to HSQLDB or by enabling a backtrace not mangled by the JRE. So, I
am setting this bug to block the other, but do not take it too

Terrence: could you give a try to a newer version (> http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=45e8fd5fcc71219d7564b475a3fec3d4536f70aa, see comment of this commit)?
With a debug build of commit 20c5618, fetched 2014-05-18 20:13 UTC,
the segfault is gone.
Thank you, Julien, for the heads-up. But that commit referenced
fdo#41295, "MAILMERGE Corrupted PDFs in massmailing". Is that what
you intended? If so, the resolution should be FIXED.
Thank you Terrence for your feedback, great it works now! :-)
You're right it's better "FIXED"
