Why it's not masked in portage? I tried the one from portage and the one from libreoffice website (I have compiled the source code) and both have the same symptoms: crashing while opening some impress presentations / saving documents / etc. Newer version 4.1.3.2 looks better. Who decides whether to mark it as stable or not to mark? I'm a professional user of this software and ready to test and to share my experience.

Do you have libreoffice set to use its own file dialogs?

in libreoffice menu

tools - options - libreoffice - general

check "use libreoffice dialogs"

use of non-libreoffice dialogs (especially kde) causes crashes
when saving / opening files (this is a known bug which may
be affecting you)

I too use 4.1.2.3 but I have no problem with stability unless
I try to use system file dialogs

you must have another problem ...

ОК. And what architecture do you use? My one is amd64. I use Impress much and with the most files 4.1.2.3 works fine, but with some of them - crushes - both gentoo version & the one from libreoffice website. As for earlier and older versions I don't see these problems. Also sometimes in 4.1.2.3 I see blank dialog when changing cell attributes. And "Save As" dialog also cruses sometimes

Why should it? Upstream says it is stable, so it is not masked, but keyworded in the Portage tree. If you install packages that are not in the stable tree, it is assumed you know what you are doing.

I am using libreoffice-4.1.3.2 on KDE-4.11.3 with KDE-Dialogs, and it is dead stable for me.

Here are the USE-flags I set:
Code:
 ~ $ equery u app-office/libreoffice-4.1.3.2
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for app-office/libreoffice-4.1.3.2:
 U I
 - - bluetooth                                   : Enable Bluetooth Support
 + + branding                                    : Enable Gentoo specific branding
 + + cups                                        : Add support for CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
 + + dbus                                        : Enable dbus support for anything that needs it (gpsd, gnomemeeting, etc)
 - - debug                                       : Enable extra debug codepaths, like asserts and extra output. If you want to get meaningful backtraces see http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml
 - - eds                                         : Enable support for Evolution-Data-Server (EDS)
 - - gnome                                       : Add GNOME support
 + + gstreamer                                   : Add support for media-libs/gstreamer (Streaming media)

 - - test                                        : Workaround to pull in packages needed to run with FEATURES=test. Portage-2.1.2 handles this internally, so don't set it in make.conf/package.use anymore

 + + webdav                                      : Adds support for HTTP content adding via net-libs/neon
Note: USE="gtk3" for LibreOffice sure to lead to problems. So if you have installed libreoffice with the gtk3 USE flag enabled, then please try without it. It is not described as "Enable highly experimental gtk3 frontend" without a reason.

As I explained the problem is not in 4.1.3.2? but in 4.1.2.3.
After opening of some (not all, but some) impress presentations it's crushing. In messages I see:
localhost kernel: [ 1917.079071] traps: soffice.bin[3525] general protection ip:7f86b741548a sp:7fffa760bd50 error:0 in libstdc++.so.6.0.17[7f86b73b3000+e8000]

But in newer 4.1.3.2 everything is fine (this error is not reproduced)

sorry about confusion about version numbers

I rebuilt my libreoffice with Yamakuzure's flags and re-enabled
kde dialogs

I still get crashes

the message in konsole is:

Code:
QWidget::repaint: Recursive repaint detected


and in /var/log/messages:

Code:
kernel: soffice.bin[9894]: segfault at 118 ip 00007f6b6947e6e0 sp 00007fff4711c9e8 error 4 in libQtGui.so.4.8.5[7f6b69102000+a40000]


EDIT: looks like perhaps building qtgui with +gtkstyles has solved this; at least I've
opened a new instance of libreoffice and saved a document several times without
a crash .... we shall see

Oh sorry! I misread that then! 4.1.2.3 was stable for me, too.

libstdc++.so? Which version of gcc do you have installed and which are the USE flags for gcc and the CFLAGS for both gcc and libreoffice? (Note: Try with emerge --info <package>)

libreoffice is (like all OpenOffice instanciations) *highly* delicate about CFLAGS. So if you have *any* Graphite or LTO stuff enabled, I'd recommend to try without first.

My flags for libreoffice:
Code:
 $ cat /etc/portage/env/app-office/libreoffice
## CFLAGS:
CFLAGS="-march=native -pipe -O2"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -s -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--hash-style=gnu"
And my settings for gcc:
Code:
 $ cat /etc/portage/env/sys-devel/gcc
# FOR GCC ONLY

GCC_MAKE_TARGET="profiledbootstrap"
## CFLAGS:
CFLAGS="-march=native -pipe -ggdb -O2"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--hash-style=gnu"
## FEATURES:
FEATURES="distlocks protect-owned sandbox sfperms strict unmerge-orphans"
FEATURES="${FEATURES} split-log" ## Split logs, so the directories are better scanable
FEATURES="${FEATURES} splitdebug"           ## For everything that does not use stripping/optimizing LDFLAGS
FEATURES="${FEATURES} test" ## Needed for USE FLag "regression-test"

So it seams that it's a well known bug for those who use kde flag. And as I checked it's not yet hacked even in current developing version from libreoffice git repo.

All file dialogs are fine. I am using qtcurve, maybe it's a style/design issue?

However, if I try to move cells in localc with the mouse as described above, it crahes here as well. I never do this, because I find it too hard to aim the mouse correctly. ctrl-x + ctrl-v is faster for me in any case. That's why I never noticed this bug before.

Dear Yamakuzure, the same error occurs if you move not only cells, sheets tags also. And how do you move rows (with hot keys) if you want to put them between others?
