7-zip archive with ODS file

OS: Windows XP 32\64-bit; LibreOffice\
Extract the ODS file (see attachment) and try to open it. The program crashed.
But OK when I used Lubuntu 13.10 32\64-bit.

I know that You looked this bug.
Yes, LibO_win_x86 crashed when ~75% of the file uploaded.
Comment 3 ape 2013-12-21 06:13:28 UTC
Possible that size of the “content.xml” (1,03 GB) is a reason of this bug.

Loaded it needs 7.086.876 KB memory - Argh! But works. Can scroll down to line 1048576 which is the last one.
Please do not expect the 32bit versions to import this.

(Note that failing to load the large document is not a bug. But crashing instead of presenting a meaningful error message to the user is.)
