Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 149565
OOWriter crash on initial save
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Description of problem:
OpenOffice Writer crashes when I initially attempt to save a document.
This doesn't happen really every time, and I can't really nail down
what triggers it; at first I thought I could reproduce it with a
one-line document containing non-US characters (specifically I used
the Swedish characters Ã¥, Ã¤ and Ã¶ since I was writing in Swedish) but
when I just tried again that didn't trigger the crash. Also, I have
seen it on documents written entirely in English, which were thus less
likely to contain "exotic" characters.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Frequent but not always. Can't nail down exact trigger.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start OOWriter (haven't tested other components though)
3.Attempt to save. Watch OpenOffice crash as you hit the "Save" button
in the save dialog.
OpenOffice crashed. I installed the debuginfo package and got a
backtrace from bug-buddy; I'll attach that.
Ideally, my document would have been saved to disk instead of /dev/null.
I'm running FC3; basically the only exotic thing about my setup is
that I rebuilt GTK, glib and Pango from Rawhide RPMs in order to get

Sorry about all the empty dupes and the bugzilla spam I just generated, I was
using the "beta" bugzilla interface and when I submitted the report I got a "500
Internal server error". I didn't realize that anything actually went into
Bugzilla until too late...
I have installed FC3 + updates, but this behaviour reproduced only
under KDE, and works ok in Gnome environment.
Per, may be this bug blocks the #144607?
Re Comment #8: I think what you mean is that it's a duplicate? Sure seems like
it, I just reproduced when starting oowriter from the commandline and it hit the
assertion in gnome-vfs:
libgnomevfs-ERROR **: file gnome-vfs-cancellation.c: line 133
(gnome_vfs_cancellation_cancel): assertion failed: (gnome_vfs_is_primary_thread())
Closing as a duplicate.
