Hi Bart,

Thank you for the sample document. I selected the file and sorted it by rows using key 2 in alphanumeric ascending order in LibreOffice 4.2.5 on Linux and 4.2.4 and 4.2.6 on Windows 7 and unfortunately couldnt reproduce the crash. Is there any additional information you can provide that will assist in reproducing this?

First of all I sorted with key 1. I can still with the sample document reproduce the crash. If I delete all text from the last column the sorting goes OK.
I run LibreOffice Versie: Build ID: 1cb170a04bb1f12e77c884eab9192be736ec5f5 on a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit SP1 machine.

Hi Bart,

I had originally sorted Key 1 and that didnt crash for me and it didnt rearrange the list, as the list is already sorted by Key 1, so i didnt mention that in my previous comment. Well i went ahead and installed 4.2.5 to see if its a bug limited to that version, but still couldnt reproduce it on Windows 7.

Is it possible that you can follow the instructions provided at this link < https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/How_to_get_a_backtrace_with_WinDbg > and submit a backtrace, so that a developer can look into the reasoning of the crash. If you need any assistance during the process, i will be here to assist.

Comment 9 Bart Hengeveld 2014-07-15 12:23:39 UTC
I hope that I did well.

Comment 10 Bart Hengeveld 2014-07-15 12:44:20 UTC
I saw something about a write error to a certain memory location. I did run a memtest, no errors.
Comment 11 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-07-15 19:28:01 UTC
Hi Bart,

Thank you for the backtrace. Yes the backtrace looks good and i will pass it on to a developer to evaluate.

I'm glad the instructions were simple enough for you to follow. Was there any information in the wiki that wasnt?

@Meeks: can you have a quick look at the backtrace.
Comment 12 Bart Hengeveld 2014-07-15 20:15:16 UTC
Hi Jay,

I made some mistakes initially due to faulty reading of the instructions, in the end however I read the text properly and than things went OK.
I did not do the mini dump.
Comment 13 sophie 2014-07-17 15:16:50 UTC
Hi, I reproduce the crash with version and version Ubuntu 14.04. I add a copy of the crash report from Ubuntu, not sure it is useful but who knows :)

Comment 15 Bart Hengeveld 2014-08-01 19:46:30 UTC
Also with the newest version of LibreOffice Versie: 
Build ID: 62ad5818884a2fc2e5780dd45466868d41009ec0
I can reproduce the crash when sorting a table. On another machine running 64 bit version of Windows 7 same results.
Comment 16 Bart Hengeveld 2014-08-02 09:33:22 UTC
I did now install LibreOffice on my linux machine (Lubuntu 14.04.1 LTS - Mate). Same results, LibreOffice crashes on sorting the table.
Comment 17 Bart Hengeveld 2014-08-29 06:07:12 UTC
With the update to issue is fixed. Sorting now OK.
Comment 18 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-08-29 09:10:36 UTC
