From the crash report a crash in *writer* is indicated, is that correct ? We're
talking about tables and formulas in writer, not in calc.
Comment 3 Steve Friedman 2008-02-25 12:24:47 EST
Correct.  I was using writer, not calc.  (The formula was a simple =<A2>+1 variety.)

Also, if it matters, I had 'record changes' on, but 'show changes' off.

After this, OO 2.3.0 crashed 4 times in 10 minutes (same crash message).  I
downloaded the stock 2.3.1 from the OO.org website and have been running it for
a few minutes.  Tonight, I'll run memtest and report the results of both the
stock 2.3.1 and the memtest tomorrow.

I believe this is the same root problem in untbl.cxx as
Comment 7 Steve Friedman 2008-02-26 09:41:30 EST
Responding to comment #4:  memtest ran overnight with no errors and the stock
2.3.1 did not crash yesterday afternoon.

Responding to comment #6:  Can't say for certain.  I've reviewed that bug report
and it does seem similar (complex table formats and undo).  I had OO v2.3 (from
the RPM) crashing just by doing (1) recover file and (2) 'accept all changes'. 
(I wanted to see if the don't show changes was related to the bug.)

In any event, I've abandoned the v2.3 RPM in favor of the stock 2.3.1 tarball.
