Console msgs and saved crash report (but not transmitted)

Yesterday night I upgraded from 3.3.* to 3.4.0, and during the rest of the night's work I had 3 crashes. It's been a while since I last had a crash with openoffice, so I thought it worthwhile to report this. 

The crashes were not tied to a specific situation (one I recall happened when I was trying to save a spreadsheet). Anyway, they are probably related to the fact that I am currently working with a file with several sheets dealing with, say, around a thousand cells in each, but the main problem is that I have another group of sheets that I reference, and those are around 40k cells each. All of them have numbers and text. Opening/Saving this file was taking like 10--15 seconds. I now resorted to move thos reference sheets to a separate file to lessen the chances of another crash (and another data loss), but now I'll have to learn how to use a proper database for this outgrown application. 

Anyway, I don't expect a mature software like that to crash and not report anything (the standard MacOS tools was not invoked anytime). Resources could be low at the application level, but it shouldn't crash.

To solve this, try to reset/rename your user profile as explained in the official OpenOffice forum.
