Crash opening MS Word docs

I get a reproducible crash when opening (in Writer) two different MS Word docs that I have.
Crash log attached.
Sounds a bit like bug #482961, although not the same because:
a) it doesn't happen on all docs, just a couple of specific ones
b) removing .openoffice.org doesn't help
Caolan, I can't distribute the docs publicly but if access to them would help with debugging then contact me privately.
Package version is in crash log, but for the record it's openoffice.org-writer-3.0.1-15.2.fc10.x86_64
Yeah, send me a demo one (whichever reproduced is physically smallest) and I'll have a look at it. Its definitely a specific .doc import issue rather than bug #482961

A minimal .doc created from scratch that can reproduce this
gotcha, fix checked in. Will be in >= 3.0.1-15.3
