Description Gibson 2014-09-03 15:40:40 UTC

I've a software that integrates with LibreOffice Writer using the API. I created a class that implements the com.sun.star.document.XEventListener interface and I attached an instance of this class using the addEventListener method.
With every version I test until 4.2.x (the last was 4.1.3) it worked correctly. Using 4.2.6 or 4.3.1 when I attach the listener the Writer hangs until I close the listening software, then it return to accept input.

I think it could be a bug of the latest releases but if not you can suggest me a workaround to fix this problem? Thanks in advance.

Well - to do anything we need to confirm the hang which would require us to have access to the "other software" or simple reproducible steps that would not require us to have the software. Without this there is nothing we can do. If it's proprietary software then I suggest that you get support as we can't handle corner cases with proprietary software that we have no access to.

But again - if you can get us reproducible steps that do not require proprietary software then set the bug back to UNCONFIRMED. Setting the bug to NEEDINFO.
