DOC file working with word but blocking LibreOffice Writer

When opening this DOC file (see attachement) LibreOffice beta 2 is blocking.
Same with previous stable versions 4.0.1 to 4.0.3, 3.6.x, 3.5.x.
I've tested LibreOffice on windows and Linux 32 bits.
Comment 1 Emir Sarı 2013-06-18 08:46:18 UTC
Reproducible with 4.2.0 master, on OS X 10.7.5. 

OpenOffice also hangs while opening the file.

Tricky doc, inherit from OOo, no duplicates, high/major importance doesn't make sense
Comment 13 Timur 2021-06-10 11:15:04 UTC
Many bugs where LO crashes/stops responding are Major and I find it correct. 
If Inherited from OO it can be Medium, though, while regression should be High.
