Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-02-11 03:46:53 UTC
Steps hos to reproduce with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC3 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit):

1. Start Calc, and new a spreadsheet document.
2. Merge cell A1 and B1.
3. Input data to cell A1, A2 and B2
4. Copy cells A1: B2
5. Click column header to select the whole column, e.g. Column E.
6. Paste cells copied in step 4
   Expected: all column filled with contents
   Actual: Hangs

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.5 German UI [Build ID: OOO340m1 (Build:502)]" parallel Server installation on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.0  - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:6) tag libreoffice-]" 

Also reproducible with OOo 3.3, so problem seems inherited from OOo.

Works fine with OOo 3.1.1

NEW due to own test results and referenced AOOo Issue "[From Symphony] Calc stop responding if paste merged celss to a column"

Bug 45925 - WinDbg session

Checked with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Well, selecting a column means that the content will be copied to >1 M rows. It can take time and LO is unresponsive. So it is more like bug 48381. Additionally, LO crashed while autosave in my case. I made memory dump and processed it with WinDbg.
Attached full WinDbg session with memory dump file loaded.

A remaining bottle neck seems to be cell insertion.

Apart from hardly having sense to paste a million rows, looks like I don't repro with 7.0+.
