Created attachment 57109 [details]
Sample Document

While CALC updates data from the web, only a grey area visible.

Steps how to reproduce with [Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).

1. open attached sample.ods
   > Document will be opened and loaded, progress bar visible
2. confirm "Update?" if necessary
   Expected: info concerning further open progress
   Actual: nothing, document window with grey area instead of document contents
           for a minute, looks similar to a hang, after app. 1 minute contents 

There should be some progress bar or status bar information (loading contents from ... xx%) or similar

Thanks for bugreport
Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.3 on Fedora 64 bit
LO becomes unresponsive for few minutes, users can think that it hangs
