Description of problem:
I created a file with some graphics on MS Word from XP office (Windows). The graphics were generated in Adobe Illustrator, and copied into Word using 'paste special', and selecting the 'picture: enhanced metafile' option.
If I load the document into oowriter, it will read fine. However, if I use the right hand side scrollbar to move down within the document (by single-clicking below the bar to do a "jump scroll", the program crashes when it gets to the second page & tries to display the picture there. I've got a testcase file (unfortunately about 850 kb in size), and a backtrace from gdb with debugging symbols.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the word file in oowriter
2. Scroll down by single clicking below the right hand side scrollbar to page 2
Actual Results: Instant crash (when tracing with gdb, this also causes X-windows to lock until the program is killed)
Expected Results: Displays the picture
I'll attach a testcase file & the gdb output.
