Description flemmingbjerke 2003-08-21 11:24:19 UTC
When an sxw document is opened in online layout, OOo11rc3 becomes extremely
unstable and freezes soon. However, if you make a simple file with a few
characters, it does not seem to happen. So, the problem is not abundant with all
sxw-files, but it was abundant with the two first files that I worked with for
professional reasons - and on two different linux-distributions: Redhat9.0 and
Knoppix3.2. You can reproduce this freezing bug by using one of my files on this

1. Open it.
2. Wiev > online layout
3. Change to another desktop and OO freezes.

Probably, the bug is not abundant in Windows, since windows does not have
several desktops.

Does not happen with my installation (linux using KDE2.2.2).  Could it
be a feature of the Window Manager?

Unable to reproduce RH9/KDE/1.1rc3
Comment 3 flemmingbjerke 2003-08-21 21:56:16 UTC
I run kde-3.1-10 on the Redhat9.0 box (my laptop with knoppix has hardware   
problems). It sound reasonable that it is some interaction with kde3.1.   
I think it only freezes for several minuttes. Before I sent the bug report I   
tried the bug again, and OO froze as expected. But, the last time I did not kill OO  
because I made some other work. Now, having received your additional  
comments I returned to OO, and it seems to work in online layout and with two  
windows open with the file I linked to in my bug report. But, having it at two  
different desktops made it freeze when I shifted. I have recognised similar  
phenomena with OO1.1rc2 and OO1.1rc1: It often took a couple of minuttes to  
shift from one window to another window of the same file in online layout mode  
on different desktops.  
So, perhaps it a combination of using two or more windows in online layout and  
shifting desktops that makes problems.  
I have 376 MB RAM and 700 Mhz via processor. My swap is a bit too small. Here  
is a "cat /proc/swaps" while the OO is frozen:  
/dev/hda15                      partition       128480  128480  -1  
/mnt/lager-a19/swap             file            204792  42620   -2  
So my swap is far from fully used even though OO freezes.

Does OOo really freeze or does it "only" take very long to be usable

If OOo really freezes -> issue 11081 (as well not reproducible)

If OOo is back after a while: -> issue 16419 or issue 12305

In any case duplicate.
