Lo 4.4 base crasches on opening base-report

lo 404 - win 8.1 base front on mysql database - data input throug writer form works fine

same issue on win7.

Using Libreoffice on Windows 7 and JRE 1.8.0_31 (32-bit)
I recently upgraded from to and trying to run a report or build a new one using the wizard it would go into an infinite loop. Had to kill the process to get out and then recover the database (that worked, thank goodness).
Uninstalled and reinstalled – then all was well again.
Looks like a regression bug?

From the Libreofficeforum.org I got this information —
there is a bug report that does look relevant to your problem (which only seems to affect Base Reports on Windows); PLUS also see this duplicate bug report (maybe the problem has been fixed in the latest LO builds?)

problem solved! lo - reports do the job as asked - thanks!
