Description drberg1000 2004-09-13 15:56:02 UTC
Here are the list of events that lead up to the problem:

Document created in OO 1.1.2 and probably saved as .sxw.  Eventually saved as
.doc (word97/2000/XP).  Doc was given to a colleague to review.  She made some
changes through the "record changes" feature.  Saved document as Word 9.0.  This
word 9.0 document is the one that I'm having problems with.  It can be found at  The problem is this:
when I open the word9.0 document I can see the changes and add to them and save
as .sxw, but if I try to save as word 97/200/XP ooffice segfaults.  I don't get
a core dump or I'd upload that as well.  

My system is running Debian Testing.  the ooffice package is version 1.1.2-3

The tracked changes are not the reason for the crash when saving this Word
document with OO Writer. The table at the end of the document makes trouble to

MRU->MM: there seems to be a problem with the im-/export of the complex table.
The table structure is not imported correctly; this seems to be the reason for
the crahs when saving in WW format.
