Description kees538 2016-02-26 10:32:48 UTC
Comparing two files makes LibreOffice crash

OS = Windows 7 (confirmed on a Linux platform too)
LibreOffice version 4.2, 5.0 and 5.1


I open de file GS5007-GettingStartedWithDraw.odt
I go to Edit > Track changes > Compare files (5.1)
I chose the file GS4207-GettingStartedWithDraw.odt
After comparing the changes are visible.
Than I chose to save the file and LibreOffcie crashes.

The files are downloaded from: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications

I compared other files successfully before, but these files make LO crash.

Created attachment 123016 [details]
bt with debug symbols

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources (+enable-dbgutil) updated today, I could reproduced the crash.
However, the crash is an assert inside a DEBUG block.
Comment 2 kees538 2016-03-20 08:59:40 UTC
I struggled through the first part of the document without saving it after comparing.
After that i deleted about half of the clean document and compared it with the earlier version again.
Then saving it caused no crash anymore.
Can it be the size of the document or the amount of changes that causes the crash?
Comment 3 kees538 2016-03-26 07:02:10 UTC
Saving the compared file as a .docx file doesn't make LibreOffice crash.

Comment 10 Xisco Faulí 2018-11-14 13:59:59 UTC
I can't reproduce this issue with GS4207-GettingStartedWithDraw.odt and GS5007-GettingStartedWithDraw.odt but I can with the documents from bug 98868:

1. download full getting started guide 4.2 and 5.0 from 
2. open GS Guide 5.0 in LO
3. select menu Edit - Track Changes - Compare Document
4. select GS Guide 4.2 and wait
5. after compare try to save file
6. LO crashes
