openoffice option causes crash

I am playing with the new suite and am quite impressed. When i went to try openoffice writer though I was overwhelmed by the number of tool bars, with no easy way to remove them so I started digging into the settings. I found that when I went into view>toolbars>customize and then clicked on the keyboard tab in the resulting window, openoffice would crash, doing a document recovery before restarting itself. Not sure what is causing this bug or if it occurs for nayone else. Thanks Andrew

Overwhelmed?

But there are only two toolbars on by default: Formatting and Standard. Which is the basic layout of every word processor I've ever seen (including Word, Word Perfect, AbiWord, etc). Oh wait... I think you mean toolbar buttons. In which case, yeah, there are a few.

I just tried what you said and it worked as expected. No idea what may be up with yours.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

hmmm

Yeah there is a few buttons but there also seems to be more bars, there are six lines of icons, not all full lines but still more than the normal two, I had a picture but not sure how to put it on here to show you and it shows where I clicked to get the error, maybe i downloaded a bad copy or something, i might try again later.

Ditto

Ditto. On '95. Not so, on XP. CrashRep.exe seems to be cause for hanging. OO can be stopped from ProcessExplorer. CrashRep can't be.
