I agree 100% with "never crash." We should at least trap the exception.

I'm going to need hand holding for that.

Here is the problem font

I am willing to try using gdb from the command line.
But after reading the Development/How to debug I am no wiser.

At this point I need step by step Terminal instructions.
As a starter so far this is what I have done following previous advice:

(0)	A successful regular 3.3.2 build
(1) 	As advised by Jonathan Aquilina <eagles051387 at gmail.com>
	cd git/libo
	source MacOSXX86Env.Set.sh
	cd sc
	make -sr clean		#build told me to use make -sr
	make -sr debug=true

Do I still need to do this?
(2)   $ cd git/libo
	# then do as advised by Michael
	$ source MacOSXX86Env.Set.sh
	$ cd vcl
	$ rm -Rf *.pro # the output directory [unxmacxi - editor]
	$ build debug=true

Anyway what is vcl?

(3) Now what?

As a comment in passing is there a block diagram of the overall architecture?
e.g. the 19 repos mentioned in the dev doc. I can grock pictures better than text.
I find the learning curve for the folklore pretty steep. <smile>.
