	Sounds like a lot of fun :-)

	Interesting; so it would really help to have the document.

	So - what we would normally hope for - is a minimal test document that
displays the problem. Thankfully the process of getting that is
basically what QA would do to try to isolate the problem - so you can
really help out with development.

	I would load the doc in MS Office; chop the 1st half of it out; save -
and re-load in LibreOffice 3.3 - if it crashes, the problem is in the
bottom half, if not, it was in the top half (so chop the other half and
repeat). After repeating the cycle five times or so - you should end up
with almost nothing left of your document [ which hopefully you are
happier to share ], and can file a bug / post it here ?

	Is that possible ?
