1. New Text Document.
2. Have Navigator open (I have it independently docked on left).
3. Help -> LibreOffice Help.
4. In Document (Untitled 1), change to Active Window in Navigator.
Navigator shows headings, bookmarks, etc from help.
5. In Help window, go to Find tab.
6. Enter something (I chose "formatting").
7. Double click on one of the items in the list.
Crash.  AutoRecovery when application restarted.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1

OSX backtrace

Also crashes on OSX with a pretty identical looking backtrace
Comment 3 Matthew Francis 2015-03-30 07:38:03 UTC
Setting to Platform: All, although this isn't reproducible on Linux (which seems to use the system web browser for help)
Comment 4 Matthew Francis 2015-03-30 07:42:22 UTC
Apparently the choice of inbuilt help or not is controlled by ./autogen.sh --with-help, and it may not be built by distribution packagers (or just not installed by default?) on Linux, hence the difference. So this probably could be reproduced on Linux if configured correctly
Comment 5 Matthew Francis 2015-03-30 08:23:11 UTC
I can't reproduce this on 4.3, so it appears to be a regression.

Unfortunately the bibisect trees are built --without-help, but I'll have a go at bisecting it manually

Same cause as bug 88360
