User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
This is a MSWord document that was sent to me. When I open it on my home
installation of redhat 8 using openoffice-1.0.1-8, it opens sort of fine. The
math looks bad, but it does not crash. 

In the fresh install of redhat 9 (with all updates installed) on my laptop, it
causes a crash of oowriter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try opening the attached file in oowriter

Actual Results:  The importing document notice came in the status, and the
progress bar proceeded to the right. Two bars before the end, a dialog box pops
up saying "An unrecoverable error has occurred. All modified files have been
saved and can probably be recovered at program restart" with only the option of
hitting OK.

Expected Results:  It should open the file.

Any idea what version of Freetype you system is running?

For example, from gnome Terminal:

[blah]$ rpm -q freetype
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-09-10 16:04:03 EDT
freetype-2.1.3-6 on the RH9 system. (the one that has oowriter crash)

freetype-2.1.2-7 on the RH8 system. (that opens the file, but in a messed up way
as far as the math is concerned)

Comment 4 Dan Williams 2003-12-05 17:11:22 EST
Hmm, does not crash 1.0.2 on a Fedora system.  Can you test with
1.0.2-8 at all on RH 9?
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2004-02-27 11:38:02 EST
Please try current OOo 1.1.0, and reopen if problem still occurs
