Thank you for your report!

However, processing it in order to get sufficient information for the
developers failed (it does not generate a useful symbolic stack trace). This
might be caused by some outdated packages which were installed on your system
at the time of the report:

debconf version 1.5.41ubuntu2 required, but 1.5.42ubuntu1 is available

Please upgrade your system to the latest package versions. If you still
encounter the crash, please file a new report.

Thank you for your understanding, and sorry for the inconvenience!

Since this crash, I did not reproduce the bug, now LibreOffice is on Ubuntu Precise on my computer.

I precise I used lo-menubar at the crash time (I still use it), as for the print view crash, but this one happened when closing a document.

If it occurs again, I'll post the crash logs here.
