backport of fix
Its a known bug, fixed in later releases.
Its not *that* much of a biggy in that it doesn't make sense to attempt such a merge, but it clearly shouldn't crash.
(we get this for free on a re-base of Ooo)
Verified with openoffice.org-3.1.1-19.1.el5
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5Client - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5Server-DPAS - i386, x86_64
2.Choose Edit ->Changes->Merge Document
3.In pop out window, select the crashed .sxi file and click "Open",the oocalc won't crash now
