Description andreschnabel 2007-03-09 19:02:10 UTC
PDF export in Draw will crash , if a large object has bitmap background and
transparency enabled.

To reproduce:
- create a new draw document
- set page format to A0
- create a rectangle that covers the whole page
- set area - fill to "bitmap", choose any bitmap, enable "tiled"
- set trancparency to 50%
- export to pdf (use default settings)
-> OOo will crash
Comment 1 andreschnabel 2007-03-09 19:05:06 UTC
problem seems to be unix/x11 related. I could not reproduce on windows.

Problem has been reported for a ubuntu vendor build of OOo 2.1 and verified with
OOo 2.2RC3 on Linux x86 and Mac PPC.

Indeed not reproducible on XP with OOo 2.1
Comment 5 Giuseppe Castagno (aka beppec56) 2007-03-10 11:19:52 UTC
Issue exists in Debian, testing version current as of yesterday.

X11 is xorg 7.1.0-15.

I had a compiled m205 tree so I checked there. The attached file is a plain text
file of what I found.

It seems located in the same area as it was issue 75249.

CC myself, forgot it...
Comment 8 Giuseppe Castagno (aka beppec56) 2007-03-12 09:29:50 UTC
I had some spare time and I checked the issue a little bit further in.

In my system it crashed because there is an object allocation (using new
operator) that asks for more memory than what I have available: request 3M+
where I have 1m ram + 2m swap.

I don't know if the memory size requested is right or wrong though.
