Description Andrea Santilli 2005-06-20 17:31:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it-IT; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I scroll down documents containing a lot of pictures writer hangs.
Moreover on KDE (not on gnome) all the desktop seems to be hanged until I kill soffice.bin process.
Maybe it's a memory related issue.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document which contains many pics (sxw or odt) with OOo writer
2. Scroll down the document
3. writer hangs

Additional info:
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-21 03:57:46 EDT
attach a document which reproduces this for you.
Comment 2 Andrea Santilli 2005-06-30 06:52:58 EDT
That's a problem because the containt of the document is patented and I can't
attach it here. I just took the text and pictures from a web page, pasted them
on ooo writer (1.x) and reformatted the document.
Now the document hangs writer 2 :(

But there's a positive new in latest update (1.9.112-1.1.0.fc4): now when it
hangs on kde, it doesnt hang all the desktop environment anymore.

Last time writer hang, i did 
# kill -s SIGTRAP 18632
to try to unlock it but soon a dialog appeared. In the title there was written
"OOo has crashed: Paste this text into your bugreport"

The following text is the content of that dialog:

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-30 07:09:37 EDT
Well that's enough information to know that it is indeed hanging in writer's

But I'd have to get a sample document to the writer layout developers to make
any progress on this :-(, I generally cannot debug what I cannot reproduce
locally. So I'll have to mark it as WONTFIX for now.

There have been similiar layout loops in the past. Perhaps give it a go with
1.9.113 out in a day or two and see if you get lucky and that resolves it. 
Comment 4 Ian Pilcher 2005-07-14 17:47:33 EDT
I have just seen this bug (or something very like it in
openoffice.org-writer-1.9.112-1.1.0.fc4.  I'm running under KDE, and it did
freeze the entire desktop until I killed it from a text console.

I'll attach the backtrace.

I'd be glad to share the document, but I can't reproduce the problem right now.
Do you still want it?

Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-15 03:10:01 EDT
Yeah, that backtrace is useful. It tells me that your problem is a known bug
with the clipboard (libdtrans) under kde. This one is fixed in rawhide 1,9,117-1
which will soon be updated for FC4.
Comment 7 Andrea Santilli 2005-12-19 21:13:02 EST
This bug seems to be fixed in 2.0.1-143.2.1
