Document Recovery Error Window

PC Info:
Dell M4500
Intel i5 2.5Ghz
Win 7 Pro SP1

I just downloaded and upgraded (installed) Open Office 3.3.

I run the Drawing application and start with a blank page.  I try to add the first element, which is drawing a rectangle, as soon as I click to locate the first corner of the rectangle the Drawing application closes and an Open Office Document Recovery window pops-up (see attached screen capture).

Sorry, I did not realize it would save my entire bug report and submit when I tried to upload the screen capture.

Steps to repeat (I have done this 4 times in a row over the last 3 days)

1) Open Drawing Application
2) Zoom in 1 level (Select Zoom Icon '+' and click on the page)
3) Select the Rectangle tool
4) Click anywhere on the page to start a rectangle 
5) the application should now crash.

Let me know if there is some kind of log that I can submit.

Did you send the bugreport? Which email adress did you use?
Comment 3 r4zoli 2011-03-03 10:11:21 UTC
I tested OOo 3.3 on win7Home SP1, I can not confirm it.
I could insert any drawing object.
I tested with DEV300m101, same result, no crash.
Comment 4 davem_milrtime 2011-03-10 19:14:04 UTC

Yes I have submitted a couple of error logs when I get prompted.  This issue now seems to cover Writer & Drawing.  It seems that every time I open a Writer file it immediately crashes to the desktop then prompts for a document recovery.

I did not have these issues before until I upgraded to OpenOffice 3.3

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Openoffice 2 times now and I am still getting the same results.  Draw & Writer are hanging as soon as a document is opened or when I try to start a new Document.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.

within the last year. Please provide feedback as requested and re-test with the the latest version of OpenOffice - the problem(s) may already be addressed.

Steps used to reproduce:

1) Open Drawing Application
2) Zoom in 1 level (Select Zoom Icon '+' and click on the page)
3) Select the Rectangle tool from the right top side of the page.
4) Click anywhere on the page and drag right or left to create a rectangle. 

Expected result: The application crashes.
Actual result: The rectangle was created.

Also tried to zoom in more than once. Tried to zoom out after creating the rectangle.
Tried all shapes from the application.
