I'm going to make a leap and assume that you have the testing update of cairo
1.4.8. If so, roll back to 1.4.4

I do not think that this is a duplicate.  When I set SAL_IGNOREXERRORS=YES calc
still crashes.

'rpm -q cairo' returns

ah yes, FC-6, it couldn't be the same problem. mea cupla
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2007-06-21 17:02:00 EDT
The trace would seem to imply that entering a key has triggered StarBasic into
action, which is sort of odd.

Still very strange, I can't see why any of that would have crashed :-( I can but
only suggest that you reinstall office. 

rpm --erase `rpm -qf /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0 | xargs` 
yum -y install openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-writer openoffice.org-impress ...

I did the reinstall.  I can now get work done again.

You mentioned StarBasic.  I have to share files with people who use MS office. 
Might a macro in one of these files caused the problem? 
Comment 9 Caolan McNamara 2007-06-22 11:02:29 EDT
I guess it's *possible* that there was a macro that activates on keystrokes, but
I would have expected to see something in the stack in-between the keystroke and
the construction of the StarBasic module, macros are probably a red-herring. If
it reoccurs and you have any suspicions as to what may have triggered it (e.g.
prelink runs daily to optimize newly installed binaries) then certainly let us know.
