oocalc crash on changing alignment inside edit cell mode
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
oocalc crashed on me while trying to center the contents of a cell spanning
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a sheet with 10 columns:
- Numbers 1 to 17
- 9 columns with 2-letter titles
- Optimal width to all
- In first row (over titles) merge cells
- Enter a string
- Select it, and try to center
Crash, all Gnome freezes (had to kill oocal via ssh to get control back, had to
kill the bug report window via mouse close to get at the gnome-terminal from
which to copy the crash report)

OOo calc crash report
Any chance of a .ods which sets up the scenario which will crash when I do the
final stage ? I'm having difficulty in reproducing, I guess I'm probably
mis-understanding a step.

A spreadsheet for crashing oocalc
On the Gnome terminal from which I launched oocalc it showed:
Avert a fatal crash
Dunno if this was there last time around.
Just tried on i386, no crash. But the selected text isn't centered either.
Seems a comment got lost...
What I did was to select the "Horst von Brand" text (not the cell) in the
spreadsheet at #3 and asked to center it. No effect, tried right-aligning, etc.
Nothing. Closing oocalc via mouse gave the same crash report as before (diff(1)
shows no difference).
Very ugly, input handler has a pointer to a pattern which is deleted by adding
the alignment attribute.
Workaround checked in, reported upstream as
Fixed as of 2.0.4-5.1 (at least it doesn't crash anymore).
