Comment 3 tommy27 2014-10-17 14:41:38 UTC
ok, so it must be a Linux specific issue. 
I revert status to UNCONFIRMED waiting for other users to retest under Linux.

This got fixed I believe, in the sense of not crashing at least, with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=8302d048653d9ac25d3cb9ab9277df715053ad6a

Doesn't crash for me in master or 4-3 now anyway
