Broken xls file


Sorry, I had thinking what attachment is public from AquaCluster report.
Comment 3 David Tardon 2012-12-21 07:52:12 EST
Opens fine with my vanilla builds, but fails with Fedora's -> the failure is most probably caused by one of our patches.
Comment 4 David Tardon 2012-12-23 12:10:48 EST
The problem is not caused by any of our patches. The file is misclassified as writer_MS_Works_Document. I am investigating why.

backtrace of loading failure

There is a problem loading the stream deep in sot. In the if condition in sot/source/sdstor/stgelem.cxx at line 407, nSize == 0, but nPage1 == -1, so StgEntry::Load returns false. But I have no clue why this apparently is not a problem in my debug build...
Comment 6 Michael Stahl 2013-01-04 13:48:27 EST
this is a 3.5.6 regression from the review patch d5345bfb40d6e33087fd053cc220308a2bc2945e,
the commit for fdo bug 53909 fixes this problem.

i'll add this and preemtively also the other 2 fixes in the upstream
3.6 branch for other regressions from that patch to the f17 package.
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2013-01-21 05:33:45 EST
libreoffice- has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 8 Pavel Alexeev 2013-01-21 06:37:13 EST
It still does not opened by version of Libreoffice in Fedora 18. Do you plan add patch for F18 branch also?
Comment 9 Eike Rathke 2013-01-21 07:24:56 EST
F18 is already on that should have it from upstream. Please upgrade and try again.
