I can not confirm this with my version, because every time I press CTRL+X, after 7 to 10 seconds, it says not responding. This happens every time I try this.

Bibisected with win32-6.2 to https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/847848d1401f23d51501e4b3396967a4bc193913%5E!/

make SwContentNode handle legacy ModifyNotification() again (tdf#117749)

Double-checked by checking out the commit and previous one.

30 seconds, so little improvement but still not sufficient.

That fixed a crash -- it should be not be too controversial that is better to have it take a bit longer in this corner case than having the product crash.
