From: Tom Cloyd...

To recap - the dev version you refer me to below is for Windows. I run Kubuntu Linux 13.11.
Sorry for the misunderstanding on my part, I did not realize you were on -- kubuntu.
That's my fault. I totally erred in not specifying my environment from the start. I know better.

3. Here's the problem:

a. I move some cells from one sheet in a Calc document to a higher
location in the same sheet.

b. This messes up some linked formulas, so I copy two cells that are
correct down through all the others (normally this works OK). to relink
the formula.

c. Immediately and I get this error message:


/...closing the error message modal window immediate crashes the whole

I can offer to share the spreadsheet in which the crash occurs, for what
that's worth. It has maybe 30 sheets and is about a meg. in size. I did
find that removing about 15 of the sheets appeared to stop the problem,
for unknown reasons.

The primary developers for Calc have been on top of issues with the major code refactoring done for 
the 4.2.0 release.
So, if you can attach your problem spreadsheet to a FDO hosted Bugzilla report with precise Steps 
to Reproduce the issue that is the best way to assure that the issue gets attention.

I'd attempt a bug report, but every time I've tried that I've gotten
lost in the sheer strangeness of the process. I just can't take the time
to try to wrestle through the process, which is certainly not set up for
average users, I'd say.
In truth filing is pretty straight forward, but you'll need to register an account to submit. Two 
choices: one guided with the Bug Submission Assistant (BSA) ->  or  directly into the Bugzilla interface at  (currently a link to hosted BZ).  For either case, 
give it a descriptive title and you'd report against:

Product: LibreOffice
Version: release
Component: Spreadsheet
Platform: x86(IA32), Linux  -- once we get a look at your attached spreadsheet we'd confirm and 
expand the platform against other platforms.

And If you file, and please do so we can confirm and get this attended to, post back with the BZ 
I just now have some time to use, and so will go and get the filing done, and return as you request, with the BZ number.

If there's some other package I should have installed, let me know and
I'll try it, but right now it looks like this issue isn't even on
anyone's radar.
Devs sort of expect folks on Linux to roll their own, but as you found there is  the nightly 
TinderBox-45 rolling 32-bit RPM and DEBs of master:

If you can get the kunbutu install done from the DEB, should help identify if the revised code in 
master has addressed your issues.
Will do just that.

Also, there are PPA packaged builds for the Unbutu folks as well, I just checked and a not 
yet posted. But you could keep an eye on it:
and for earlier review.

I'll set up access to this.

Thanks Stuart. I much appreciate your willingness to help. I try to give a little pay back and get that report filed.
