Description ich01 2016-02-12 12:35:05 UTC
Created attachment 122573 [details]
Document which causes the crash.

Application crashes when removing the '-' char after "Web" in the first column (attached document).

The original document (where this did happen the first time) was created with Open Office, i've copied and pasted the table in a new document in Libre Office. The bug only occurs after saving the document at least one time, not in an unsaved document.

The language of the paragraph is German.

Step by Step:
1. Open the document
2. Place cursor behind "Web-" in the first column
3. Press backspace

I am setting status NEW.

I see that the arrow keys will not move the caret so that it shows at
the end of the line after the hyphen.  If, however, you click after
the hyphen, the caret moves after the hyphen, and then <backspace>
sends LiberOffice into a loop:  the hyphen remains, CPU usage is high,
and LibreOffice does not respond to mous clicks or keystrokes.

In a local build of commit ebd6884, the bus loop is in 
SwTextFrame::_Format, sw/source/core/text/frmform.cxx lines 1425
to 1524.

    tdf#97139: prevent loop while formatting small text lines

is presumably the fix
