MRU->OD: insert a control in the margin above the upper text border. Change its
anchor "to page". then insert insert a page header. change anchor of control "to
paragraph" and then "to character" - crash.
BTW: crashed even in OO 1.1.
Comment 3 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2008-02-05 14:20:17 UTC
Form controls inside page header/footer are not supported yet.
First investigations reveals that the code for changing the anchor of a form
control does not consider, this restriction. This causes the crash.

Workaround: Place the form control inside the page text area before changing its
anchor type to "to-paragraph"
