Description Björn Michaelsen 2014-07-02 16:58:32 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1/ Tools->Mail Merge Wizard
2/ go through Wizard to "6. Edit Document" (use reasonably large dataset)
3/ press next
4/ a popup appears that shows progress "x/y documents .." with a cancel button
5/ Press the Cancel button on the still visible roadmap modal dialog (the one with "next", "back", "finish", not the one with the progress bar

expected behaviour:
mail merge gets aborted

actual behaviour:
LibreOffice crashes

IIRC its just an uncatched exception somewhere.
