Thanks for reporting.

I can reproduce a crash using Linux Mint 14 x64 with Version:
Build ID: 5441e509f87c96ca36913bd443152adbb8ad2c9

Therefore I mark this as NEW.

Kind regards,

This file seems to be invalid. I could not open the file in Excel 2010 or the OOXML SDK. LibO master opened the file at least to some part but also shows the generic import dialog.

I'll build a 4-0 build to check why it might crash 4.0.3

Actually it looks like you did not save your file, you seem to have saved the website showing the file.

Looking at the file with a text editor reveals that this is clearly not an Excel file. It is not even a html file where we could import a table or something like that. I'll see if I can reproduce the crash but this is clearly a minor issue.

I downloaded the file in Firefox with the Option Save Link As… from a website.
The file was hosted on Dropbox. After your reports, downloading it from Dropbox Website directly, now the file could be read successfully in LibreOffice 4.0.3.

Thanks a lot,
