Description dmanderson 2006-11-24 12:51:30 UTC
If you open too many Calc files, there comes a point when Open Office simply crashes without warning. To replicate: * Create 100 simple calc files (one sheet, and a couple of cells is all you need). * Open each file in turn (do not close anything down). Eventually, Open Office will abort. On some machines this is as low as 20 files, while on others it is around 50-60 files. There is no loss of performance prior to the abort, and there appears to be plenty of memory available at the point it crashes. On machines with more memory however, more files can be opened before the collapse. The behaviour is repeated on SUSE Linux and MS Windows Server 2003 and MS Windows XP.

Just to add some additional information: we are opening spreadsheets from Java code. It doesn't make a difference whether we use the same connection for opening each spreadsheet, or create a new connection for each spreadsheet (leaving the spreadsheet open, but closing each connection after the spreadsheet is opened). It eventually crashes when enough spreadsheets have been opened. If we open and then immediately close a spreadsheet, our test program carries on indefinitely and does not crash. This is only an issue when many spreadsheets are being left open.

The problem occurs when you open the files - it doesn't matter if they are opened remotely. Simply opening from the UI is enough to cause the issue. There is no warning about the crash - all open documents are closed as Open Office shuts down.

Hi Niklas, please have a look at this one. Replicated it, used 58 docs and crashed. Will attach a zip file with 100 simple docs. Frank

This issue still exists in OpenOffice.org 2.1.
Comment 6 dmanderson 2007-01-12 09:41:49 UTC
Updated version to show bug still appears in 2.1
Comment 7 dmanderson 2007-01-12 09:43:19 UTC
** Set version to 2.2 by mistake, now set correctly to 2.1
Comment 8 frank 2007-01-12 10:38:11 UTC
@dmanderson please do not change the version field without any good reason. Telling us that 2.1 also shows this problem is not a good reason as you've submitted this for 2.0.4 and the Issue is not fixed, so it *must* be present in 2.1 . The Version field justz shows the Version there the Issue was initially discovered. Frank

change target from 2.x to 3.x according to http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Target_3x
