Comment 1 Julio Sanchez Fernandez 2005-12-30 06:24:14 EST
Description of problem:
Some images make openoffice crash while opening or handling OpenOffice format
text files produced by GRAMPS.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
Actual results:
Crashes with:
$ /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice: line 156:  5677 Violación de
segmento  (core dumped) "$sd_prog/$sd_binary" "$@"

Expected results:

Additional info:
The sample file is produced by GRAMPS.  The problem seems image-specific, since
other images are shown normally.  I have produced a very short file containing
just one failing image to exhibit the problem.

Though I have not marked it as security-related, it is a crash induced by user
input.  The potential security problem there should be considered.
Comment 2 Julio Sanchez Fernandez 2006-01-02 02:56:06 EST
The problem is related to the path name to the image, it is coded as iso-8859-1,
while the reference to it in the manifest and in contents.xml is in utf-8. 
However, changing the path name encoding to utf-8 does not fix it, it still
dies. In fact, I have been unable to find any encoding that does not make it
crash.  Apparently, it is impossible to have an embedded image that has a name
inside the .zip file that is not pure plain ASCII.

Nonetheless, and whether this is supported or not, ooo must not crash on this.
