LibreOffice's New Area Dialog Box crashes when compiled with Clang

When you build LibreOffice with Clang 3.8-4.0, the area dialog box will cause an "Application Error" crash in Writer, Calc, and Impress.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Build with Clang 3.8-4.0
2. Insert Shape
3. Format -> Texbox and Shape -> Area

With Clang 3.8 r242222 and 4.0 r270000, LO will crash. I'm see thing on an AMD desktop with Ubuntu 14.4 and an Intel laptop with Ubuntu 16.04. When built with gcc, there is no crash.

Any ideas what's going on here?

Are you seeing this with your clang builds?
