Trace of CRASH when Insert -> Special Character...

How to provoke the CRASH of LibreOffice Writer

(1) Choose Apple font, e.g. "Webdings"
(2) Write some characters (may bee this is not important)
(3) Menu -> Insert -> Special Character...
(4) --> CRASH

There is NO CRASH when selecting one of the fonts within LibreOffice.app - e.g. the font "OpenSymbol". Also some Apple fonts do not provoke a crash, e.g. "Apple Chancery" is handled well by the "Special Characters" window.

See the attached document containing a complete traceback of the crash.

(I confirm the bugs 91855, 93114 and 93269 (64 bit only))

Best regards

Thanks for reporting this bug. I looked at the crash report, and it seems to be the same bug as in Bug 93113. The good news is that it's already fixed (at least for 5.0.2, but hopefully will be added to 5.0.1 RC2 as well).
