    OO Writer Crash Xorg xserver


    Hello

    I have a serious problem with OpenOffice Writer 2.0-2.2 and Scite on Debian Etch/Unstable or Ubuntu Feisty.

    When I paste a selected code from Scite text editor in OpenOffice Writer, a number of Insert Section modal dialog windows are appear on screen.

    This number of windows is equal with the number of selected lines from Scite editor. When number of lines is big (hundreds) desktop became useless or entire operating system can crash if soffice.bin (OO Writer processes) is not killed logged from a telnet or ssh connection, when terminal stop responding.

    Even when I modify menu entry from OO Writer Insert->_Section, to something else like Insert->_ction nothing happen. So I think this has nothing to do with Alt+I+S key combination.



    Somebody has/had a similar problem or answer to this problem ?

    Never heard such a problem before. Try with some other text editors and tell what happens. The usual suspect in this case is the text encoding of your text editor. Try changing the encoding of ur open office document and tell what happens.

    There is a bug report about this problem
    Nabble - clipboardTargets and OpenOffice
    I try scite compiled with patches from this thread but nothing changed.

    The problem persist even when use Paste Special (Ctrl+Shift+V) -> Unformatted text with text copied from Scite,
    simple text or code with syntax highlighted.

    OO Calc or Impress aren't affected by this bug.
