Description andreschnabel 2005-10-31 16:06:40 UTC
When trying to open the attached example file, OOo 2.0 will hang (CPU-usage goes
to 100% and no interactions is possible anymore).

The file can be openened with OOo 1.1.5 without problems.

MRU->OD: the file contains many frames with graphics inside; looks like a
"label" document.

I've two other files, full of colored changes in text, that makes that 
openoffice 2.0.0 on Windows XP hangs, if you open this file. I can open the 
files without any problems with openoffice 1.3 on Debian. As the document is 
confidential, please send an e-mail to, when you 
start solving this problem. I'll send you both files.

new issue as a duplicate.

SBA: Set internal "reference" field (OK in 1.1.5) according to Andres description.
Set Prio to P2 (a loop)
Comment 7 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2006-01-30 13:28:06 UTC
fixed in cws swqbf52 - changed file:

defect cause:
Since OOo 2.0 the text frames containing the graphic and some other text frames
are correct formatted. The empty paragraph in these text frames now wraps
correctly around the inner graphic and text frames. This causes these frames to
have a greater height. Thus, these text frames overlap and its content now wraps
around each other, because these text frames are anchored inside another big
text frame. This wrapping causes the layout loop.
Fixing this layout loop is too risky for OOo 2.0.2. But I decided to adjust the
wrapping behaviour of content of at-paragraph/at-character text frames, which
are anchored inside another text frame, to the wrapping behaviour, when such
text frames aren't anchored inside another text frame --> Now, a content of such
a text frame doesn't wrap around another text frame in the same layout context.
