Description ccheney 2009-02-24 15:49:21 UTC
Attempting to open this document causes OpenOffice to consume all available
memory and be OOM killed. I tried it on a machine that has 4GB of ram and it
used it all...

Verified on official OOo 3.0.1.

Reproducible. Reassigned.

I couldn't achieve to open a pptx presentation which has size of 264 MB.

Quite all my system physical memory is used (3GB).

Openoffice Impress froze with a popup with the "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime
Library" title which told that there was not enough space anymore.

Openoffice version : 3.1.1 OOO310m19 (Build9420) for Microsoft Windows Vista 32
bits service pack 2

sj: The bugdoc
is encrypted and such PowerPoint documents can't be loaded with OOo. Indeed we
fixed not to crash if trying to open encrypted documents, this has been fixed,
you will get a message telling you that this file is encrypted and can't be loaded.

The problem Sophia brought up seems to be something different (because of the
huge filesize), without having a bugdoc, it will not be possible to be more precise.
