[fix available] OpenOffice.Org crashes while editing colours
Last modified: 2009-04-29 17:48:22 EDT
Description of problem:
This has happened twice now while I've been trying to edit the colour palette in
OpenOffice.org -- the program exits and prints a long stack trace (which I'll
attach) to the console where I started the program. This was in Impress both

Oh, that's nasty. Still affects F-8 as well.
I've logged the fix as http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=83169

we do such an update
openoffice.org-2.3.0-6.5.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
We are using openoffice.org-2.3.0-6.10.el5 in RHEL5.3 and the problem is still there.
No surprise, because they're different branches, and there's a different set of criteria for getting a fix into RHEL
