Opening non-existing file from gnome-panel's Recent Documents when file dialog open locks OOo
Last modified: 2008-08-29 11:48:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Selecting a file that no longer exists from the GNOME Recent Documents list when
the File Open dialog is open.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OOo 2.4, GNOME 2.22
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an OOo Writer file "Test1.odt" (e.g. in your home directory).
2. Create an OOo Writer file "Test2.odt". Both Test1.odt and Test2.odt should
appear in Places->Recent Documents.
3. Delete the file "Test2.odt".
4. Open "Test1.odt" in OOo Writer.
5. Select File->Open....
6. Select Places->Recent Places->Test2.odt. A message appears saying the file
does not exist.
Neither the error message, the Open dialog or the OOo Writer window now works.
If you have any other OOo windows open they are also not working. The only way
I've found to recover from this is by killing X (Ctrl+Alt+BkSp) losing any
Click OK to acknowledge error, carry on working.
Can't quite get exactly the same results, but I do see an error in this
interaction path that is likely the problem
Just verified this problem several times. It can NOT be reproduced under FC8.
[root@dhcp-65-153 Documents]# koji list-pkgs --tag dist-fc7 | grep openoffice.org

It was reported on F9/rawhide, not F8 and I don't know why you're listing
packages built for F7 ?
But I'm pretty sure it was the problem I fixed as
http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=87991 and included in the F-9
OOo, so all should be well now there.
So sorry for my wrongly verifying. I will re-verify it as soon as I finish
seting up testing environment.
I re-verified this problem,it does NOT appear on FC9.
I still see this problem, exactly as described with:
I also see it on F7 and F8.
Ah, *now* I understand what you're talking about. In a nutshell, if the file
open dialog is active, and then you use the *gnome panel places* menu to open a
non-existing file the dialog is blocked.
I think what we were all testing was the "recently used places" area *inside*
the file open dialog
That's correct, sorry if it wasn't clear. With the OOo Writer "file open" dialog
open, I select the non-existant file from the GNOME Places->Recent Documents
menu. The error message then appears and the OOo GUI thread locks.
fix checked in, will be in next rawhide
