Description Li Feng Wang 2013-04-19 02:08:31 UTC
build: r1463876

1)create a new impress
2)Insert new table with default 5 columns and 2 rows

step2 will crash OO.

This isn't reproducible in a build previous sidebar integration

Comment 3 Shenfeng Liu 2013-04-19 17:17:38 UTC
It seems the key of the crash is to expand the Table Design panel in the sidebar. I and 2 other people reproduced this issue (on Win7).
Comment 4 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2013-04-22 11:23:55 UTC
Andre, please take over.

Investigation reveals that due to a somehow not 'valid' SfxShell stack the Slots SID_ATTR_PARA_LRSPACE and SID_ATTR_PARA_ULSPACE are called at an <TableObjectBar> instance instead of a <DrawViewShell> instance.

Note: On Windows having module sfx2 build with debug information no crash occurs due to the fact that the corresponding Windows exception is caught in <IMPL_LINK( SfxBindings, NextJob_Impl, Timer *, pTimer )>
Comment 5 Andre 2013-04-22 16:03:02 UTC
The root cause of this crash (on Windows this manifests as a looping attempt to update a slot with a lot of exceptions thrown) is that the SidebarController reacts to context change synchronously.  The insertion of a table is also notified synchronously, so the SidebarController creates new panels after new tool bars and, more importantly, new shells (in this case the table and the text tool bar shells) have been created but before SFX2 has fully updated its internal state.  What is missing in SFX2 seems to be an invalidate of at least one SfxStateCache object.  That references the wrong shell (has an index of before the new tool bar shells where pushed on the shell stack).  That wrong shell is accessed like it where another shell (in this case there is a hard cast from TableObjectBar to DrawViewShell) and this leads to either a crash (on Linux) or an exception (Windows/Debug).

While debugging this I have seen scary things:

- SfxStateChache indexes the shells on the shell stack by index.  When, like in this case, such an index is not invalidated after a change of the shell stack, this causes a crash or other subtle errors.

- In SfxBindings::CreateSet_Impl() there is this code:

    const SfxSlot *pSibling = pRealSlot->GetNextSlot();

    while ( pSibling > pRealSlot )

        pSibling = pSibling->GetNextSlot();

    I have yet to understand why this works.
Comment 6 Andre 2013-04-22 16:03:46 UTC
Fixed in revision 1470597 by reacting asynchronously to context changes.
Comment 7 SVN Robot 2013-04-22 16:04:50 UTC
"af" committed SVN revision 1470597 into trunk:
122095: React asynchronously to context changes to avoid problems in SFX2.
