Description of problem:
If I launch a KOffice application like KWord or KSpread and choose "Use this template" from the opening screen, the template will fail to load and the application will start to use all of the CPU's resources.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install koffice-suite
2. Launch kspread or kword from within KDE.
3. Click "Use this template" to load default template.
According to top, the application uses 99.9% of CPU. The application does not load and must be killed manually.
Template should load.
Also happens if I try to open an existing document. The file selector appears but when I click on the file, the application starts to hammer the CPU again.:-(
Odd, are you absolutely certain you have 2.3.2-3 and not a prior 2.3.2 version? -3 included a patch that fixes the problem(s) you describe.

Mind trying out this new koffic-2.3.3-1 build?
I am happy to test it but what is the easiest way to install it? I tried to grab it via yum but it wasn't available:
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update koffice-suite'
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
I also tried to download and install all of the individual RPMs but ran into dependency issues.
koffice-2.3.3-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
koffice-2.3.3-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update koffice'. You can provide feedback for this update here: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/koffice-2.3.3-1.fc15
I just installed koffice-suite-2.3.3-1.fc15.x86_64 via yum and, unfortunately, the problem is still there.
I cannot reproduce this on my f15/x86_64 box, *except* for krita, but I think I'd rather track that one specifically in bug #689126
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
