Description mr_smyle 2010-12-05 01:59:42 UTC
Writer crashes totally during editing document. Same error in m16 (RC6) and m93,


Bad quality because PrtScr not working after this crash.

and doc:

I can not see any steps to reproduce.
After some period of edition, on vertical scrolling.
In Russian message say "Not enough memory to create picture".

Please read about priorities:
-> P2

No crash in m94 on Vista. Issues must be reproducible in order to be fixed.

"Not enough memory to create picture": maybe you had indeed a temporary problem
with your machine.

Last: please don't link sample documents when not needed (documents too big) but
attach them in the issue.

Here is crash!

I can reproduce. 
1. Open attached doc.
2. Find figure #1 in it
3. (to see memory growth) open Windows Task Dispatcher (Ctrl+Alt+Del)
4. Scroll out of view figure#1
5. Scroll it to view
6. Repeat steps 4,5 10-15 times - you can see memory growth in tasklist for
soffice.bin process (approx. 2 Mb for each scroll)
7. All ends with crash

For figure #2 you cannot see such memory growth.

As I edit this document for a long time, I get this crash accidentally.
And I attach video.

Picture #1 was pasted as 'Metafile GDI' from Draw.

Here video (3 Mb)

MRU->AW: The crash happens in VCL, so it does not look like a problem for OD
(but it add him to cc list).
Just open the attached document, scroll to figure 1 on page 9. Now scroll this
picture in and out of the view for about 15 times. Every time about 2 MB will be
consumed until OOo crashes.
See crash report r6vv5bn. 
The problem did not occur in OOo 2.4.x and 3.1. But surely in 3.2.1. So I guess
it broke in 3.2. Also remarkable is that OOo 3.2.1/3.3/3.4 consumes ~50MB more
than 3.1 when opening the attached document.

AW->OD: Indeed, happens with DEV300m100. This is a Writer-Graphicobject, thus please have a look. Seems like it's reloaded each time and somehow not freed somewhere (memory leak?).
Comment 8 Bugcruncher 2014-09-15 15:02:42 UTC
During my tests for AOO behavior for

LibO#83476 - UI: CRASH when scroll document with GDI metafile from Calc with rotated cell contents

I found that AOO411m6(Build:9775)  -  Rev. 1617669
2014-08-13 09:06:54 (Mi, 13 Aug 2014) does not crash on WIN7 64bit.

But there still or newly is a heavy processor load scrolling reporter's sample document when GDI picture comes into focus, and that is even better visible with sample document " better crash sample" from LibreOffice bug.

So you should decide whether this one here can be closed and a fix for the Max Processor Load Problem should be done under new bug number, or whether Issue 115924 still needs a fix.

BTW: A "trivial" crash? What's the indication for a "serious" crash?
