Description cno 2008-09-15 05:15:19 UTC
ODS, linked as datasource opens read only and makes OOo not start again

1 - an odb, just a linked ods (osdA) , made in 2.4.1
2 - register this as datasource in 3.0-RC1
3 - open Writer document (docA) with field from that datasource
4 - send as html e-mail via Writer
  - open datasource browser
  - start e-mail-wizard, step 8
  - step 8
  - send as e-mail
  - etc.
5 - Close (new)writer document, but leave docA open
6 - now open ods (linked to datasource)

 > Opens read only
 = wrong, regression compared to 2.4.1
 (was problem before)

7 - close DocA
8 - now open odsA, now not read only
9 - close odsA
10 - open docA
11 - open datasource window

 > the right table does not open automatically
 > click on right table give popup with red X, without further text.

12 - close DocA
13 - Close 3.0Rc1
14 - Close quickstarter
  (trying to be able to get the thing working again)

15 - Click DocA in filemanager to start 3.0Rc1

 > OOo does not start

16 - try yo start 3.0Rc1 via the start menu

 > OOo does not start

There were various sbin processes in the taskmanager (partly from my attemps to
start OOo again)
Killing those made 3.0Rc1 open again
Now I can't reproduce the problems

But have no idea at which stage the first unfinished sbin process (that probably
caused the problems) appeared.

I'll try it again after a fress start (this evening or so)

clu->all: can anybody give a further hint?

clu->cornouws: not reproducable bugs are ugly :( you know that there exist a
fault, but you cannot repro it .. old sad story .. so let us keep this one open
for several weeks and if no further hints appear, we can close it and assume
there were strange extremely seldom circumstances ;)

thx for the patience

Hi Chris,

I tried again.
At step 6, still opens read-only.

At step 11, still the table is not opened.
I even cannot open the table.
But no empty error-message this time.

The rest of the trouble did not happen.

So I think it is right to change summary.
Was: "ODS, linked as datasource opens read only and makes OOo not start again"
Now: "ODS, linked and used as datasource opens read only, and does not work a
second time"

And to reopen
