Libreoffice keeps crashing when typing Malayalam inscript with IBus. Especially when I press the keys "a" and "x" one by one.

Below the terminal output when I open the Libreoffice Writer via terminal.

Are you able to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.10 or LibreOffice to a newer version? There was a bug filed for this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1023426, which adds it's fixed in LO 3.5.X. I'm running LO 3.6.2.2 in 12.10, tried it just now, and had no trouble with all 4 Malayam input methods in ibus.
