After the following command, unrtf output 485 lines and then output ceased with unrtf consuming 100% CPU until it was killed after 5 minutes.

/tmp/unrtf/bin/unrtf -P /tmp/unrtf/lib/unrtf --text --nopict /tmp/sample2.rtf

Comparing the unrtf output with the file displayed by OOo Writer, unrtf had stopped outputting about 2/3 the way down page 22 of 24.

The test file is attached.

This instance of unrtf 0.21.2 was built on Debian Squeeze 64 bit with gcc 4:4.4.5 and libc6 2.11.2 by:

cd /tmp \
&& wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/unrtf/unrtf-0.21.2.tar.gz \
&& tar -xf unrtf-0.21.2.tar.gz \
&& mkdir unrtf \
&& cd unrtf-0.21.2 \
&& ./configure --prefix=/tmp/unrtf \
&& make \
&& make install
