Description potassium19 2013-10-02 13:47:45 UTC
When saving a document to pdf format, the program stopped responding, and Windows automatically closed it. I found the cause to be an image which I had set to background arragement. When I changed the arrangement, the file saved.

A similar problem on LINUX systems was reported. Here is the link if it helps:

Format - Page... - Background - As Graphic
Export Directly as PDF
No crash

Comment 2 potassium19 2013-10-03 18:57:35 UTC
My apologies - it's not the arrangement, it's the wrap.
When I right click on the image, and select Wrap>In Background, it then crashes when I save to pdf.
I will attach a couple of files, if that helps.

THis is the Image I attached. The problem seems to occur regardless of image file format, however.
Comment 5 Edwin Sharp 2013-10-03 19:04:31 UTC
Thank you.
Still no crash.
Comment 6 Prosper Uniger 2013-10-03 22:11:36 UTC
steps to reproduce:
* open new writer file
* insert image (tried .jpg, .png and .wmf)
* select image
* right click, wrap - to background
* export as pdf
* select "PDF/A-1a"
* export

-> crash

Comment 13 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2013-10-10 09:10:15 UTC
I reproduced the crash in AOO 4.0.0 and AOO 4.0.1, but not in AOO 3.4.1, AOO 3.4.0 and OOo 3.2.0.

It looks like that <rFrmTagIdMap> is not filled as expected.
Herbert and myself assume that this was already the case in former OpenOffice versions, but due to the used stlport the access to the invalid iterator does not cause a crash.
