While attempting to generate a test file for NeoOffice/J Bug 980, I discovered the following really odd bug (which also occurs in OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 for X11). To reproduce it do the following:

1. Type a sentence.
2. Copy the sentence and repeatedly paste it after the subsequent sentence until you have filled the page and gone over onto the next page. Stop.
3. Select all and copy it. Then paste the entire page and a bit of text repeatedly.

After a number of pages, a point will be reached where the pasting will apparently fail mid sentence (it varies depending on what font you are using - with Futura Medium it happened on page 18 of an A4 document, and with Times New Roman, on page 7, IIRC). There will be a pause while the app thinks about what is happening. After that you will no longer be able to paste anything until you delete some text to a point beyond the previous page break (and often, doing so apparently frees the app and it completes pasting what you tried to paste before!).

If you include a carriage return after your original sentence and copy paste that instead, so the sentence always starts on a new line, this no longer happens!

Can anyone else reproduce this before I submit a bug?

eh eh eh look in properties window: this happens when you type 65535 characters in a paragraph. a staroffice basic variable string can not have more that 65536 character, and it seems neooffice paragraph have the same limitation.

Interesting limitation. 64K characters in a paragraph...

Eh, well at least that explains it! Thanks. Launches OpenOffice.org 2.0 m130 and finds the same limitation is still present there... shucks.

I guess that this is something that you simply are not going to come across in normal use, unless you happen to be recreating a certain scene from The Shining Wink
