[Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev " 3.7.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 1d1c70d]" (tinderbox: W2008R2@20, pull time 2012-06-18 08:23:14)

When I try to open document from LibO Start Center File menu LibO will stop responding.

Already a problem with LibO 3.3.3

Thank you for your report – unfortunately important information is missing.
May be hints on <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport> will help you to find out what information will be useful to reproduce your problem? If you believe that that  is really sophisticated please as for Help on a user mailing list
- In future write a meaningful Summary describing exactly what the 
  problem is
- Contribute info 
  -- concerning your Operating System (Version, Distribution, Language)
  -- concerning your LibO version (with Build ID if it's not a public release)
     and localization (UI language, Locale setting)
  –- Libo settings that might be related to your problems 
    (video hardware acceleration ...)
   -- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts

1. The file that makes LibreOffice stop responding is in attachment, can you open it on your system?

2. OS: Windows 7 Professional 32bit SP1 (russian) 
LibreOffice version: russian localization
LibreOffice settings: default
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-20 05:54:59 UTC
Already a problem with OOo 3.2-dev, so I believe problem is inherited from OOo

Thank your for quick response. It would be great if we could narrow down reasons for the hang a little bit. Do you have any Idea what what might be special with this document? May be your problem is related to one of the the bugs you see in query under URL?

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

LO is unresponsive after loading the file. soffice.bin process eats memory and
creates new threads every xx minutes. I created a memory dump when it allocated
nearly 500 MB of RAM and processed it with WinDbg.

You are right. This file has bad formatting. But anyway LO should show it as Word shows or as it can show, but not hangs... Maybe the solution of this problem can help to solve other problems.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.

I attached a bt retrieved by breaking at random.

Michael: one for you? (it seems a layout related calculation pb)
