An application should never crash and should not quit without a message 
to the user. That has to be fixed in Apache OpenOffice. So please write 
a bug report and attach the .odt document as LibreOffice has produced it 
and the .fodt file too.

The person, who sends it to you, should try to save the file not in "1.2 
Extended (recommended)" but in "1.2 Extended (compat mode)" or in "1.2" 
or even in "1.0/1.1". Then you will likely be able to open it without 
problems. Hi finds the saving format in Tools > Options > Load/Save > 

Kind regards
