Crash log

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

Comment 1 Tim Jackson 2009-02-04 11:02:55 UTC
Caolan, I can't distribute the docs publicly but if access to them would help with debugging then contact me privately.

Comment 2 Tim Jackson 2009-02-04 11:06:46 UTC
Package version is in crash log, but for the record it's openoffice.org-writer-3.0.1-15.2.fc10.x86_64

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2009-02-04 11:08:59 UTC
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
