 The Page Format shows "Area" (not "Background", as on Linux 64 version) as a tab, and I can
change a page background on the Windows version.  The crash in Impress, when selecting a Master
Page, does not occur on that Windows version.

on Xubuntu 18.04.1 64 bit I find the following differences from the Windows version.

 Works OK (as Area tab) in Windows

Yes, you are correct I meant the Background tab on the Page Style setting - I was doing too
many things at once!

I have used the build from the buildbot, and get Background, not Page.

others have reported the crash with Master Pages in Impress on that version.  I have not investigated
the 4.1.6 version on a Windows machine.
