Excel file with macros (the culprit)

I have an Excel 2003 file with lots of
disgusting macros (attached) which causes calc to hang during import.
I killed the process which then segfaulted so I took a backtrace
(also attached). Any help tracking down why this is happening would
be really appreciated!

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open calc
2. File->Open and select the attached xls file
3. Application hangs, spreadsheet is never shown

Tested with master (3.5) commit 90067e8007227b7f1e555
on openSuse 11.4

Importing attached file does not generate any problems / does not hang the system.
Afterwards, executing the macros generates some errors / warnings, but this is another story.

This bug report relates to a different problem I am trying to track down and is erroneous. Is it possible to delete it?
