The crashes can occur even with a brand new installation so the profile conversion is not
the first thing to look at (and it was deactivated from AOO 3.4.0 IIRC).

Indeed. And see above, it occurs with fresh installations.

Volume of changes: since it can happen almost immediately after installation, I would say
it's a dead end.
String length: could be; but why resetting the profile should fix it? Except if there is a
voluntary tweaking by the user (rather rare).
