These instructions do not make it clear, at least for me, how I could try the crash for myself. Could you please be more specific?

I followed instructions in Chapter 11 of the LibreOffice 4.0 Writer Guide, starting at the beginning with registering my data source (I am using a Calc doc as the source spreadsheet) mapped all the fields, etc. I then follow instructions for creating new labels, as described on Page 313, when I get to step 9 (top of page 316 of the Guide), I "Click New Document..." and nothing happens. I get the spining wheel and LO stops responding.

I was getting the same thing using a Calc document as my data source. Did a lot of tinkering and Google-ing and was ready to give up. Then I upgraged from 4.2.something to and it worked perfectly. If that doesn't work or you have the most updated version try uninstall/reinstalling, or maybe downgrading.
