Insert->Formula in OO.org Writer Crashes Program
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to insert a formula into an OpenOffice document crashes the program
once the formula-entering window is exited and the formula is being drawn on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The crash log is attached.

Every time ? I don't get this problem with I just stick a formula into a writer
Yes, this is reproducible every time on my computer.
1) Start a new incidence of OO.org-writer with a fresh page
3) Type anything or nothing into the formula entry area
4) Click on a blank area of the page.
The formula area becomes grayed-out, and about a second later OO.org crashes
with the error log I attached above.
Further testing reveals that the problem extends beyond just the formula applet:
If I start a new copy of oo.org-writer and choose File->Exit, the program also
crashes with a similar log.
Testing reveals that this is not dependent on anything in my
~/.openoffice.org2.0; the crashes happen with a fresh environment.
Most odd, I wonder why I'm not seeing anything like this on my F-7 box.
The bugs were fixed by re-installing the openoffice* packages, and the bug
cannot be reproduced. Resolving and marking NOTABUG to close.
let me know if it happens again, there's always an outside chance that it is
triggered by prelink optimizations, in which case it would happen if prelink
gets run again, e.g. daily by cron
