It looks like there is a table whose second row contains no cells; I suppose this is a bug in the table handler. Anyway, it results in a NULL dereference and a crash later. We could just add some tests to avoid the crash, but it would really help us to have the document to catch the cause of the problem. If it's confidential, you can send it by email to caolanm or to me and we will handle it as such.

Comment 3 James Ralston 2010-08-18 16:36:10 UTC
I sent an example document that causes OpenOffice to crash to David via email at 2010-08-18T12:33:13-0400.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2011-06-01 11:23:53 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 6 James Ralston 2011-06-01 20:44:52 UTC
F14 OpenOffice still crashes. Have not tested LibreOffice.

Comment 8 David Tardon 2011-10-25 11:02:01 UTC
This was actually fixed by Cedric long ago (for LibO 3.3). I thought I put the patch into F-14 at the time...

Comment 9 David Tardon 2011-10-25 11:14:46 UTC
Okay, sorry for the (unnecessary) delay. This will be fixed in openoffice.org-3.3.0-20.9.fc14 if there is another update for F-14.

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2011-11-30 11:46:36 UTC
