Created attachment 123492 [details]
The faulty odt


while I was creating a document I had a bizarre issue. when I scrolled through it would duplicate everything I could see so that it didn't show up correctly.

I have created a file with the issue, it has something to do with having a background image and using web layout.

My explanation is quite unclear but I don't know how to make it clearer, just check the attachment and scroll through it with this version.

Confirmed with v5.1.1.3 under windows 10 x64.
Confirmed with v4.4.7.2 under mint 17.3 x64.
Unconfirmed with v4.3.7.2 under mint 17.3 x64.

Maybe already fixed with alpha builds ?

I can reproduce this on 5.2Master, win7 -  build is 6 days old
Bibisected  - oldest build in repo doesn't show background image [another bug], I marked it as "good". Latest build in repo show the image and when scrolling the bug occurs. During the bibisect doesn't exist step where background is shown and scrolling is without bug.

Michael, please could you take a look? Not sure if it's related. Thanks

the commit in comment #3 fixes the bug that background images on headers, footers and pages were lost, so it's entirely unsurprising and unlikely to be the root cause of a scrolling problem.
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-12 12:50:54 UTC
Adding keyword 'bibisectRequest'.

The duplication is only temporary and will go away after waiting for a bit. I don't think this can be bibisected as the versions that do not show the background correctly (repeated) do show a little bit of chopping when scrolling, but it does not stay. So the root cause is indeed out of reach for bibisecting.

Tested on Win with 3.5.0, 4.3.0,, 5.3.0, bibisect repo 44.

Dear Ben,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
