Description clivelong 2005-06-13 15:06:49 UTC

Running Oo 1.9 Beta, Windows XP Pro SP2 on 800Mhz / 512 MByte machine 

I downloaded a simple word document, 386k, that contains a few tables - I think
it contains a few graphics. My virus checker says it is clean.

When I try to open the document in OO Writer, the CPU goes to 100% and writer
takes whatever is not used by other processes. This 100% CPU usage (c.97%
Writer) persists for many minutes but only for this one file. I have a number of
other MS-Word documents (some much larger) that OO Writer has no problems opening. 

The maximum time I left Writer in this state was 5 minutes before I gave up and
cancelled Writer using TaskMgr - so must be some kind of loop that taskmgr says
is happening in Writer .

I can open the document in WordPad - the content is a few Word tables - the text
format is a bit "messy" in that there seem to be some "non-display" characters
in the text, rendered as squares.

When I open the document in WordPad a pop-up dialog titled "Microsoft Word 97
conversion" says "Unable to load graphics conversion filter. Continue with
document conversion Yes or No?" So at a guess OO Writer is having a problem
reading a Word 97 document.

confirming on linux -> OS to all.

As described: in m107 the CPU usage is 100% even after a couple of hours the
documents still is not loaded. In OOo 1.1.4 the document opens fine ->
regression keyword.

MRU->FME: please have a look where this loop has to be fixed. Thanks a lot!
Comment 4 frank.meies 2005-06-28 15:28:41 UTC
FME: There's an autowidth frame in the footer which causes the problems.
