I could replicate the bug on Windows configuration using Writer of 3.4.1 Build: 9593.

Here are the specific bug reproduction steps that cause the bug in which Writer
crashes when the Find and Replace feature is used in large documents:
1.  Open the document attached in the original bug report in Writer.
2.  Click Edit in the upper menu bar and select Find & Replace.
3.  Enter "," in the text field labeled "Search for" and "\n" in the text field
labeled "Replace with."
4.  Press Replace All.  The software will become unresponsive for a minute and
then the error box titled "Runtime Error!" will show.
5.  Press the button labeled "OK" in the error box, and a new message box will
appear with the message " 3.4.1 has stopped working."
6.  Press the button labeled "Close program" in the message box and the
software will crash.

This bug will be important to customers because in large documents, if a
frequently used word, phrase, or symbol must be replaced, without a functional
Find & Replace feature, the replacement must be done by hand and can cost the
user plenty of time.
