Description amy2008 2009-04-17 04:04:38 UTC
Can reproduce it in OOo310m9 on WinXP and Fedora9

How to reproduce it
1 Create a new Writer file
2 Insert some paragraphs, word number is more than 60000
3 CTRL + F, input '^.' without single quotation marks in the "Search for" text,
  input nothing in the "Replace with" text, click "More options", check 
  "Regular Expressions", then click "Replace All" button

An dialog to turn off the "undo" function is opened, click "Yes" or "Cancle" 
can make OOo freezing, if click "No", dialog shows "Search key replaced 60000 

OOo works well

At step2, word number should be character number

No crash with OOo 3.1RC1 (m9) on Windows XP here.

Meiying -> MRU, sorry, I will remember it.
Comment 5 amy2008 2009-04-20 03:54:55 UTC
Meiying -> volkerme,
Have you followed the reproduce steps, especally the step2, there is a need of
60000 character numbers.
Would you like checking it once more?

I produced a Writer document by copy and paste text, no complex doc structure
(No Heading/tables/numberings or objects). 
Tools - Word count: 65110 words and 392502 characters.
I did as described, clicked "Yes" in "Switch off Undo" dialog.
Waited a while...
...and got 392502 replacements (Replace all characters with nothing).
-> This variant works as expected woth OOO310_m9 on WinXP.

Amy2008, can you attach a bugdoc, please?

Now, I can't reproduce it neither.
The steps you have done are quite right.
Set workforme
