Subject [Bug 120115] New: unconformant DOCX silently crashes on opening
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2012 09:43:20 GMT

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120115
           Summary: unconformant DOCX silently crashes on opening
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: Windows 7
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: open-import
           Product: word processor

Created attachment 78514
non-UTF8 OpenXML-like document

Attached is document, generated by some intranet system.
It violates 2.4 chapter of ISO by specifying non-UTF character set.
// the application is targeted at Microsoft Ofice compatibility, not at
specifications. And MS Office opens such documents just fine.

MSO 2010 / 2003+CompatPack just open that documents easily.
KingSoft Office for mobile phones refuses to do. Pro 3.3 (by also displayed an error and refused to

AOOo 3.4 ... just disappears.
It probably had crashed but no GUI, even no OS-standard app memory dumper

I run application from console to see if it would log something out - but
silence in the stdout/stderr too.


Best possible outcome would be MSO approach. Since you can edit arbitrary
HTML/XML, you already do have a library of charsets and can transparently
recode the document whil opening.

Or at least AOOo should report the error to user and explicitly deny opening
the document. 

But just silently crashing and closing without saying a word is not good
