FYI. I have backported the fix for OpenOffice.org crashing bug #109743.

The fix is in the following test patches for anyone who wants to test the fix. I was not able to reproduce the bug before or after backporting the fix, but the crash log in the bug is very similar to the attached NeoOffice 2013.1 crash log that was submitted to Apple:

NeoOffice 3.4:

I've installed the patch, but wasn't able to reproduce the crash before doing so either.

I have however noticed an inconsistency when creating new presentations:

With no document open, or with the front most document window anything other than a presentation, selecting File->New->Presentation launches the Presentation Wizard.

With the front most document a presentation, selecting the same menu item opens a new empty presentation without launching the wizard.

This may be the intended behaviour, but it seems a little odd to me.
Not a big issue though.

Andy.

I found the cause of this behavior and it is due to my fix for this fix for the Edit :: Undo menu in Writer.

Since that bug fix causes the behavior you see and, in addition, I found that my bug fix did not solve all cases of the bug that I was trying fix, I reimplemented a new fix for that bug that won't trigger File :: New menu bug in Impress that you found.

Can you install either of the following test patches and tell us if the File :: New menu bug in Impress is fixed for you?:

NeoOffice 2013.1:

I've installed NeoOffice 3.4 Patch 0 Test 5.

In all circumstances that I can create, the New Presentation Wizard is now displayed when creating a new Presentation.

Thanks,

Andy
