OpenOffice PCX image format crash

Programs affected: OpenOffice 2.0 or so.
Version fixed: OpenOffice 2.4.1 seems unaffected.
Severity: Unknown

A kind of lame note, but I have a PCX image that used to crash out OpenOffice but no longer does. I can't remember what the deal was; it's been well over a year since I was playing with this.

Demo document: http://scary.beasts.org/misc/pcx.odt

OpenOffice supports an interesting and varied list of image formats. Someone should go forth and hack them.
