Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 118833] New: Desktop frozen on database log-in
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2012 17:16:26 GMT

             Bug #: 118833
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Desktop frozen on database log-in
    Classification: Application
           Product: Database access
           Version: RPT
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P5
         Component: none

Tested with Linux(xfce, xterm session, windowmaker) and Windwos XP. The Problem
does not occur in the Windows environment where the log-in remains usable.

Register some database connected to a password protected datasource. A password
protected spreadsheet connection will do. Close everything, so the connection
is closed.
Get a spreadsheet document, select an arbitrary cell range, hit F4, drop down
the datasource so you see the 2 tree icons for [+]Tables and [+]Queries.
Now drag the cell range onto the tables icon which is supposed to trigger the
data import dialog. When the datasource is password protected, the following
As soon as the mouse cursor touches the target icon it shows the "no parking"
symbol, the whole destop environment is unresponsive while the log-in dialog
pops up which also can not be filled out. I have to kill soffice.bin from a
terminal session.

The problem does not occur when you first drop down the [+]Tables tree so you
are prompted to log in before the drag&drop operation. Nevertheless, you need
to drop your data on the Tables icon. It is the only spot where sheet cells can
be dropped.
A solution I can think of: 
Disable the tables drop and enable the drop on a particular table, so you have
to log-in before you get any drop target. Pasting data into a particular table
might be the most frequently used scenario anyway.
My personal wish: Enable drop to query where a well prepared query reflects the
right colunm order so you can confirm the import dialog with dialog settings.

Many people collect bank account data in spreadsheets. A simple database drop
could be a huge progress even if you still need a spreadsheet to handle the
broken csv flavours commonly used by European banksters.
