Attachments: Patch to correct the refcount handling for Fill pictures

Description Daniel 2008-11-25 03:14:33 UTC
I create a slideshow the usual way.
The only objects i insert, are images.

The way i do this is the following:

slide = slideShow.createSlide();
			Fill fill = slide.getBackground().getFill();
			int pictureData = slideShow.addPicture(outputFile, Picture.PNG);

I guess its easy to understand.
after creating my slideshow, i open it in powerpoint and the first things i see are red X's or Crosses.

The Symbol for a image that can not be shown.
A workaround to see the images is so save the Slideshow againg and switch the viewing mode.

am i doing something wrong?
are there known issues?
i would like to see my images correct.

The problem is that the refcount on the EscherBSERecord is not maintained correctly for fills (although it is for Pictures).
I'll upload a patch as soon as I've got the tests working.
