[ooo-build] DATA LOSS: openoffice oobase reports SIGSEGV in openjdk-6 when saving a report
Sun Report Building crashes OpenOffice Base
You received this bug notification because you are a member of OpenJDK,
which is subscribed to openjdk-6 in ubuntu (via bug 319824).
Status in “openoffice.org” source package in Ubuntu: New
Binary package hint: openoffice.org-report-builder
Creating a new report using the Sun report builder works fine including saving,
closing OpenOffice Base, reopening Base, and reopening the report. After opening
an existing report, closing any report builder window crashes openoffice. The
recovery works fine and restores all data. Choosing to skip recovery and instead
just open the previous version of the file results in all tables going AWOL.
Version numbers of relevant packages:
OpenOffice 3.0.1-7ubuntu~hardy1 from http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu hardy main
Sun report builder 1.0.5+OOo3.0.1-7ubuntu1~hardy1
Google says that this is also a problem on Ubuntu 8.10, PCLinuxOS, and SuSE 11.
It is rumored to be resolved by installing the report builder extension directly from Sun.
I don't have time to test that right now, but wanted to get this bug logged before moving on.
Probably resolvable by including a new version from upstream.
