Description Jens Harms 2014-05-26 09:16:53 UTC
Created attachment 99850 [details]
sample document, created with lo writer, which forces a crash

Problem description:
lo writer 4.1 and 3.5 and maybe others doesn't respond and use 100% CPU.
All instances of lowrite will freeze.
 
Steps to reproduce:
1. open attached document 
2. goto 3.1 / Nr. 2. "Lara und Viola kommen ins Cafe"
3. place crsr at end of line, press "," and <enter>
4. crash

              
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 4.1.3.2 release
Comment 1 Kevin Suo 2014-05-26 09:47:58 UTC
I do not encounter the "CRASH" when doing the steps outlined by Jens Harms, in LibreOffice 4.2.4.2 and 4.3.0 beta 1.

However, when I press ENTER at the end of any lines above 5.2: "Cafe, Cafebesucher sitzen an den Tischen , Kellner bedient", there is at least 2 seconds' delay. Then when I repeat typing ENTER, sometimes libreoffice CRASH.

Typing ENTER below the line 5.2: "Cafe, Cafebesucher sitzen an den Tischen , Kellner bedient" is no delay and no crash.

So, set as NEW.
Comment 2 Kevin Suo 2014-05-26 09:49:12 UTC
Set platform to ALL, as I reproduce this in Windows XP.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2014-05-26 20:27:45 UTC
I do not encounter a crash too but a freeze on pc Debia x86-64 with master sources updated today.

I noticed these logs:

Freeze still reproducible with LO 4.4.6.0+ and LO 5.0.1.0+ both built at home under Ubuntu 15.04 x86-64.

Best regards. JBF

Comment 9 Mark Neuffer 2015-08-27 15:54:31 UTC
I have no idea if I have filled this inquiry out correctly.

As stated in my summary, I was editing text in a table.  The writer application froze and hung.  I had to Force Quit.  The work was not recoverable.

I am not real happy about that.  The recovery feature was essentially useless.

Back to re-work the document.

gdbtrace.log from libreofficedev5.2 with soffice --backtrace --writer

This log indicates that the bug is still present in all versions of lowriter.
I.M.H.O. the table-layout algorithm or the implementation does a endless loop

Comment 19 Jens Harms 2017-10-29 09:43:10 UTC
Bug is still present but it took some more editing (appended 2 lines of text in the cell: '3.1 / Nr. 2. "Lara und Viola kommen ins Cafe'). Then i inserted a 2x2 Table and wrote a number inside the new cells, then it crashed. i guess with some more time it is possible to find shorter ways to make this application crash.

I tried this version:

4. crash

Let's keep the hang and the crash in separated bugs.
Let's use this one for the hang, which is reproducible back to
