Description A M 2017-11-02 13:09:27 UTC
dear all. How to reproduce.
------------ 1st method
1) open a new calc document
2) add a comment to the first cell (any text will do)
3) copy that cell
4) select a large part of the sheet , say 10 rows x 100 columns
5) paste
result: libreoffice will start using 100% CPU and hang for more time than I am willing to wait.
info: I am using the package  LibreOffice_5.4.2_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz downloaded from the official website and installed in Debian stretch

there is a similar bug report 60418, but that one 
- is about Writer and not Calc,
- is about a specific document, that contains some specific problems
so I do not think that this is a duplicate bug.

in response to Comment #3: 

yes: it is! a bug, 

yes: it is still in the program in ver: 

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 63b39fe87644587210214198fb67d6b3fb3343c5
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2019-05-27_03:06:43
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: *unthreaded* 

yes: imho it's a clear duplicate of 76324, 

yes: i'd like the importance raised, it's monstering around for more than 5 years now, 

yes: i tested AOO 4.1.6, it has similar problems, performing much better with a big number of comments - 30k?, but crash when expanding to 90k. 

as - in many comments - assorted as 'inherited from OO', perhaps an idea to form a combined team?
