Description nospam 2017-12-27 16:48:05 UTC
When summoning "Extension Manager" and pressing "Auf Updates prüfen" ("Check for Updates"), Extension Manager no longer reacts to User Interactions like clicking on "Schließen" ("Close") in it's dialog.

Also, I see that LO's memory consumption then keeps growing until eventually it takes all the available memory, bringing down the Computer as a result.

The only way I have found to stop this is force-quitting LO from OS X's Activity monitor.

The same problem occurs when I double-click an OXT file in the Finder (I tested this with LanguageTool-3.9.oxt) -> LO opens in the Extension Manager, displays "Füge LanguageTool-3.9.oxt hinzu" ("Add LanguageTool-3.9.oxt"), then the Extension Manager locks up & consumes memory as described above).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO
2. Create new Text document
3. Open Extension Manager
4. Click "Check for Updates"

Actual Results:  
Extension Manager locks up, LO memory footprint keeps growing until OS X is out of memory

Expected Results:
Extension manager should show new/updates extensions.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
I have experienced this issue also on previous 5.4.x versions of LO.
