Comment 3 Ariel Constenla-Haile 2013-07-05 07:57:06 UTC
Crash on Linux with gcc < 4.5.0

A bug in the libstdc++ dynamic cast runtime makes the dynamic_cast from VCLXMenu* to VCLXPopupMenu * fail in framework::NewToolbarController::execute( sal_Int16 ) framework/source/uielement/popuptoolbarcontroller.cxx

Bug is solved in gcc >= 4.5.0, see

Reproducible in Fedora 18 or some other newer Linux system if you copy in /opt/openoffice4/program an older version of libstdc++, like the one available in CentOS 5 (gcc 4.1.2).

Simple fix: replace the dynamic_cast with a reinterpret_cast, or C-style cast.
