OSX 10.10.1, LO 4.4.2 + 4.5 nightly from yesterday both open and display the file correctly without any crash or hickup. linux only maybe?

Please provide steps to reproduce the issue. I’ve tested the file with LibreOffice under Ubuntu 15.04 and did not experience any crash. You can also try updating your LibreOffice installation to (out in a few hours!) and cleaning your user profile as described in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

No crash with v4.3.5.2 and under windows 7 x64, but a 'general input/output error'
Confirmed with v4.3.6.1 under mint 17.1 x64.
Doesn't crash under mint with the or So seems already fixed for the 4.4 branch and higher.

I can tell that the 4.3 series got broken with commit bcbeac44ca54f41fb80a027214b9eb2ec1eb14dd

I believe that master had this bug fixed between  1964870db4ad1e4334e8fc5050795469dc1fb05e..8cf6ba8a28f2c22817e94185121190f082c75754 so backporting something from that range would fix this
Comment 6 Caolán McNamara 2015-02-09 09:09:06 UTC
was fixed by 04fe5e6a31c9701177a744bbc8a53b2f664fe71c, so backport to 4-3 for review as https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/14377/

Marking this as resolved now
