I am using OO 3.4.1 on FreeBSD and GIMP 2.8.6.
I have no trouble inserting .jpg files output from gimp into OO Writer.
I also had no trouble when using OO 3.3.x.
How big are these files, and is there any chance you are simply running
over some memory / address space limits? I know once upon a time there
were issues of this sort in windows environments when the 4G limit was
reached. Since you are running windows, is the OO you are running a 32
bit version, and not able to make use of the whole address space? What
happens if you use smaller images, or export using a lower quality jpg?
