Description potowotoumi 2008-05-04 14:49:08 UTC

I just noticed that I have several odt and doc files that i cannot open with
OpenOffice 2.4. The program freezes on windows, ubuntu and mac.

It worked without any problems in version 2.0 and 2.3. Even when I open the
doc-file and save it with OO 2.0 it's imposible to open it with OpenOffice 2.4
or later.

To rebuild this error you can download example files:

It worked with:
OpenOffice (Win XP) 2.0 
OpenOffice (Win XP/Portable) 2.3
It crashed on:
OpenOffice 2.4 (Win XP/Portable)
OpenOffice 2.4 (Ubuntu 8.04)
OpenOffice 3 Dev-Snapshot (Mac OS X 10.5.2)

MRU->FME: mentioned document will cause a loop in Writer right after the import
/ opening process since OO 2.4. Could you please have a look if this is an
"unexpected" victim of the "loopcontrol"?
In the document there are many tables inside frame which are anchored inside the
header and footer.
Comment 2 frank.meies 2008-05-05 11:45:40 UTC
fme->od: As discussed, there's an infinite loop in SwHeadFootFrm::FormatSize()
which has been 'activated' by fixing an other issue.
