File I can't export to PDF
Description of problem:
Attempts to export a document to PDF result in a hung openoffice.org
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run openoffice on a standard LWN invoice template
2. Try to export as PDF
3. Wait for the heat death of the universe
OpenOffice.org hangs. Invoices do not get sent. LWN doesn't get paid and goes out of business. The entire Linux community mourns.
A shiny new PDF file.
The hang happens after the first click on the "export" button, before confirming the file name. I can't reproduce it with a blank page, but I *can* reproduce it if I delete everything from the invoice file. An example file is attached.
I'm going to blame bug 477174 for now as its hopeless to attempt to use the gtk dialogs at the moment.
