Description crxssi 2009-05-19 19:47:43 UTC
We were sent a single-page MS-Word .doc file.  Opened it in OO 3.1 and also OO
2.3 (and also on a different machine).  It looks fine on the screen, but if we
try to print it, it becomes a runaway process, consuming 100% CPU "forever" (we
killed it after 10 min).  However, if we create a PDF of it from OO, that only
takes a few seconds and then we can print it fine with Acrobat Reader.  I have
not seen this type of behavior before, and we deal with lots of .doc files. 
Tried both options to reduce and not reduce transparency, didn't make any

While it is stuck in runaway it slowly eats away more and more memory, too.

I do not know who created the document and with what.  But it was sent to many
people, including our business.  It is attached to this issue.

MRU->OD: looks like this is a problem with the Word Art object. When deleting
all the other stuff, the printing still caused a loop.

Reset assigne to the default "".
