Description Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2004-11-22 19:11:24 UTC
Description of problem:
A ppt-file i have (i shall attach it), chrashes OpenOffice every time,
in slide 16 ("Forces That Stabilize Nucleic Acid Double Helix")

I can "click on" three points: 
"There are two major forces that contribute to stability of helix
 - Hydrogen bonding in base-pairing
 - Hydrophobic interactions and pi-electron interactions in base
stacking ",
and there are some fancy anymation going on in a figure. But when i
then hit the mouse, it comes up with an error that there is no more
memory left, close some programs (the mem/swap graph shows me there
is, not plenty, but no chrisis). If i then try to close it, it
eventually comes up with that a "critical error" has occured, and if i
THEN try to close it, gnome eventually comes to the rescue offering to
kill it.

On opening it asks about recovering the file trice

Dork that attachment system! It took me 10 minutes to upload (2.5 MB,
ISDN...) - and it just whines *to large* *muhahah*... What about to
check that *before* upload?!?

You can find it at http://skrot.solution-forge.net

Appears to be run-away memory allocation in
X11SalBitmap::ImplCreateXImage() and StretchAndConvert().  Happens
when showing slide #17 (The Structure of DNA), or at least right when
the last bit of text has been shown on slide #16 and the mouse is clicked.

Whatever... :)

The crash is gone in 1.9.84-1 as in rawhide, but its still really slow to do the
animation. Will track the slowness issue as
