Description Paul F. Johnson 2008-01-14 08:03:14 EST
Description of problem:
Importing a word file >1Mb causes OOo writer to hang (no trace given)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import a word file >1Mb (must include formulae and images)
Actual results:
OOo writer reports it's importing, gets to 100% on the progress bar then sits there

Expected results:
Should import or die with some sort of throwback

Additional info:
Import works fine on files <1Mb (my file is 1.6Mb, but I don't have any native
word files over 900k to 1.5Mb to test with)
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-15 07:52:50 EST
Can you share with me a guaranteed to fail document ? I got success with e.g. a
4Meg doc I have here locally.
Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2008-01-15 18:24:38 EST
URL attached. If the file has been created in OOo and exported to Word, the
import works. If the file is native Word, it flunks.
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-16 04:33:26 EST
Ah, the *crashreporter* hangs, with that fixed then it's a straightforward crasher
Comment 4 Paul F. Johnson 2008-01-16 04:59:19 EST
Nasty one to fix or something for the next rawhide push?
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-16 05:14:06 EST
Oh trivial to fix, it won't be in the spin I made last night which'll be the
next to hit rawhide, but it will be in >= 2.4.0-3.1 which I'll be making today
Comment 6 Paul F. Johnson 2008-01-16 05:24:25 EST
Will 2.4.0-3.1 contain a fix for the vanishing pictures bug reported a couple of
days back?
Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-16 05:50:04 EST
I forget the id of that bugzilla, but it might be in 2.4.0-3.1 or maybe 2.4.0-4.1.

FWIW, If I could remember the bugzilla id then to find out I'd look at the
referenced OOo id, and use http://eis.services.openoffice.org/ to look up that
in the search box with iXXXXX where XXXXX was the OOO id and it'll say the
"workspace" it is in and if that workspace is "integrated" or not, and if it is
integrated it'll say which version it was integrated into, e.g. OOH680_mY" where
Y is the 2.4.0-Y.1 fedora version.

Comment 9 Paul F. Johnson 2008-01-16 06:24:08 EST
Is there an ETA on 2.4.0-4.1? I really need the basic shapes more than Word import!
