If anyone else was able to reproduce the problem then we'd love to know 
whether the DLL at
solves the problem. It contains the patch I suggested in issue 122752.

To test it please
- download the DLL
- copy it into the OpenOffice program folder, on most systems this will 
be the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenOffice 4\program\
- if the system warns you that you are overwriting a program file then 
please confirm with YES, as that is exactly what is wanted
- run your tests again that used to crash it
