Crash log

Description of problem:
Crash in Writer when resizing a table column in a simple table (no merged cells).

Possibly related is that shortly before the crash I had changed the font size of the standard "Table contents" style, which caused substantial reformatting of the (long) document. I was then just making minor adjustments to the width of a couple of columns before OO froze then crashed.

Unfortunately cannot distribute the source document, although I can't reproduce it in any case.

Dunno if there's much we can do if we can't reproduce it, especially in a writer layout area. Lets see if mapping the stack gives and easy-fixes...

# 0x8a1400: 0x0: + 0x400 (__kernel_sigreturn + 0x0)

optimized into uselessness unfortunately

Running OOo under valgrind and moving the columns of some simple tables around doesn't show anything either.
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2009-06-16 06:33:00 EDT
Can't do anything about it without a reproducer as the backtrace is in overly-optimized code to get true backtrace from.
Comment 5 Tim Jackson 2009-06-16 07:40:41 EDT
Thanks for trying Caolan. Was hoping that the backtrace might reveal the bug but obviously not - I'll let you know if I manage to reproduce it.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2009-06-16 07:49:39 EDT
Normally it has a good chance. I sort of suspect it might be some particular table configuration.
