Description Matthew Francis 2014-08-28 06:46:26 UTC
Observed on OSX 10.9.4 / LO and master

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Writer document containing "啊"
2. Select all
3. Open Tools - Language - Chinese Conversion... (requires Asian language support to be enabled in Options - Language Settings - Languages)
4. Click on "OK" ("Conversion Direction" can be either way)

However, this only occurs on my own build and not the release build of This could be a result of differences in the build environment (release builds are still built on 10.6 ...) or the fact that assertions are not enabled for release
