Description kevinoid 2009-09-29 17:08:36 UTC
After opening the attached document, clicking on the Logo graphics placeholder
in the top-left corner of the first page causes the file selection dialog box to
open and the program to immediately crash due to a Segmentation Fault.

I first encountered this problem using the Debian packages and
generated a backtrace from version 1:3.1.1-2 of those packages (since they
include the debugging symbols in a package it made the process much easier for
me).  I have also confirmed that the crash occurs using the 3.1.1 Linux 32-bit
DEB packages downloaded directly from, but since those packages
don't appear to contain debug symbols the backtrace was less useful and so I
have not included it (if it would be really useful I can try to compile the
source with debug symbols and get a backtrace).

Interestingly, if I edit the file at all before opening the graphics
placeholder, the problem does not appear.  Perhaps this is an indication that
the file is somehow broken?  I believe that the file was created on one of the
later OO.o 2 versions on a Windows machine, but I am not sure.

@OD: I could reproduce this since 3.1 (tested: 2.4, 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, 3.1.1 and
m59) on Vista (so this is not platform dependent).

My "nose" tells me "a very bad one" because OOo just simply disappears... Thus
-> 3.2. Feel free to retarget in case this is would only be caused by a very
special document... :)
Comment 4 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2009-09-30 10:24:03 UTC
The root cause of the crash is access violation in the status update code for
the toolbar list box for the undo.

This crash can be very easily reproduced:
- new text document
- insert placeholder field for a graphic
- save and close the text document
- open the create text document
- click on placeholder field
--> crash

OD->ES: I agree to You that this should be a show stopper for OOo 3.2. Please
submit the corresponding request, while I am correcting the code.
