It's been my experience that bugs tickled only by one person are very
difficult to replicate without a highly detailed explanation of every
keystroke and mouse movement and sometimes even the exact data being
used. The best way to figure out what's going on is for someone with
the necessary skills to examine the computer with the problem.
As an example I was using an application (sflphone) that kept crashing
on ubuntu. The developer was unable to replicate the problem. I
granted him an account and he was kind enough to login and poke
around. In a short time he had determined that there was a problem
with the system libraries and his program was tickling a bug in DBUS.
I couldn't tell you why he was unable to replicate it on his own
machine, but he changed his code so that it wouldn't tickle the bug
and reported the bug to the DBUS team who also provided a fix. I
would never have been able to find this on my own, and it's unlikely
he would have been able to find it on his own without my "help".

I totally agree with you. However, I do not have the computer skills to
perform brain surgery on my machine and I would not know who to ask to
When LibreOffice was established after OpenOffice were taken over and
now seems to be semi-commercial, I sold my soul willingly to the LO devil.
I prefer(ed) to stay with the rebels fighting for freedom ("Libre").
Yet I have run several times into situations where I was/am under the
impression the devil is not keeping its part of the deal.
For example, in this particular case, why does the "web layout" works
just fine with OpenOffice but not with Libreoffice.
Switching between these two applications does not change any settings in
my computer - I think. Or does it?
I could try upgrade to version 4 something, but after I tried that
before, I found that the "improvements" made things a lot worse for me and
deliberately went back to 3.6.6.
The simple "solution" then seems to be: DO NOT USE the web layout function.
It would make viewing and scrolling through long texts easier and
therefore its "disability" is somewhat annoying.
Thank you for your hint. Yes, I am aware of the "cursor position" and
personal information in Libreoffice.
This works, sort of most of the time.
The "problem" is, the cursor ALWAYS jumps back to the top of the
document when changing to "web layout".
This may not be a problem when you are working with a 2-3-page document,
but when working with a 220-page book text?
Since the cursor jumps to the top of the document, I MUST move elsewhere
in the document -> LO crashes.
