Tracking changes pasting to multiple columns generates uses > 5 GB ram (without undo steps) and takes far to long
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc
2. Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Expert configuration -> Search for Undo
Reduce 100 to 0
3. Close & restart
4. Open the attached file
5. Enable tracking changes
6. Copy A1
7. Select column A until W
A memory consuming process starts
Undo needs 800 MB; so tracking changes does something wrong

Sounds odd to me I do reproduce this also with

800 sounds more like normal paste ... without tracking changes enabled..

maybe you are right ... on the one hand i'd have sworn i've seen the notes indicating time and change on mouseover,
on the other hand a retest yesterday with below ver. on another machine sucked all 10.5 GB of available mem and then (k|gr)illed my usb-port! heavy load still pasting (machine started swapping? it had no swap partition defined), sudden freeze of mouse, keyboard and desktop, usb port unusable after reboot,
setting to new, but won't do further tests 'til machine is repaired ... :-(

P.S. for those who find this thread searching for usb problems, or if someone has a tip for the port: machine Lenovo P70 xeon, fresh OS running from a live usb-stick (kali 2020.2), port on the left side, the port is grilled, not the stick (sandisk ultra-fit 256GB), stick still works on other ports, port doesn't recognize any of my devices anymore,
Should have used a smaller example.. I was aware of the possible freeze. I mostly killed the process before it did..
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
