Description Paulo Martins 2015-06-10 07:23:34 UTC
if repeated several times, leads to crash
Comment 1 Paulo Martins 2015-06-10 07:35:15 UTC
For now reproduced only on our internal "time.odb" database connecting to PostgreSQL. Cannot reproduce with toy embedded HSQLDB database.

Something about macros or the exact setup?

Reproducer on our internal network for later use: dev\LibreOffice\tdf91976\time.odb

Open "timereport" form, choose customer, exit customer choice (e.g. go to description), go to "date à". PostgreSQL error message and the to-be-inserted record disappears.

Expected behaviour (and behaviour with toy Embedded HSQLDB database): cancel leaving the table control, let the user fix the problem with the record (as opposed to retyping everything).

Comment 3 Lionel Elie Mamane 2015-06-10 11:17:03 UTC
The originally described behaviour is linked to a Basic macro that was changing the table's datasource query and refreshing the table, and thus "obviously" cancelling the insert!

However, that seems to leave LibreOffice in some inconsistent state that leads to the later crash, which is still a LibreOffice bug. Time permitting, I'm going to work on it.

Paulo: any update with LO 6.4.3?
Also, would it be possible to have SQL script to create the table on Postgres + macro ?

No assertion failure mentioned, removing from Assert meta bug.
