Bug Description

Hi, I opened some spreadsheets with libreoffice 3.6.1 on Ubuntu Quantal Beta 2 but when I clicked on a chart libreoffice crashed instantly. I opened libreoffice with gdb and this was message on crash:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007fffea91fd06 in ?? ()
   from /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/

what happened? I tried to update to version 3.6.2 but Calc still crash.

ps. On Windows, with 3.6.2, there were non problems.

for me is impossible to provide a file, because libreoffice crash before that I can save it... I'm sorry

ps. I also noticed that writer crash when I attempt to add an index

Is this running in unity or without unity?

Also please install libreoffice-dbg and provide a full stacktrace.

with unity... ok, but how can I use libreoffice-dbg to obtain a stacktrace? I'm sorry, but I've never installed it

unfortunately I haven't 3gb to install libreoffice-dbg, I hope someone else can do it :(

FFE documentation:

proposed changes:
Checking for a NULL-pointer before derefing. Changes are restricted to libreoffice-gtk package.

Leaving out this fix would lead to crashes in a lot of cornercases and lead to dataloss (losing unsaved documents).

Testing performed on the package with the changes against 0ubuntu1: No ppa upload, time doesnt allow that. The usual local amd64 pbuilder build and locally installed those packages to verify the crash to be gone when inserting a formula.
