Exclamation KWord crashes on trying to open document


I am on fedora core 5
Whenever i try to open a document that i have recieved through e-mail.

An Open dialog box is shown.

It has 3 options:
1.Open it with default application (KWord)
2. Open With..
3. SaveAs

If i select the first option, KWork crashes on opening the document.

Here is the core dump that the application produces.

I want to know why does it crashes??

I've seen this many times when trying to open large M$ Word documents with KWord.

You have several options. First you could try updating your kword and hope the latest version has better support for doc format. Alternatively you could open the document with OpenOffice which has great doc support though is really bulky and slow. Lastly, you could try abiword.
