Comment 1 ikb 2014-01-18 23:44:53 UTC
This happens in Writer, Spreadsheet and Drawing - and may happen in other elements of Libre Office too.
Intermittently, and unpredictably, the status bar at the bottom of the screen begins to alternate, rapidly, between at least two display formats, and may also, intermittently display the 'blue squares' Saving bar too.
Simultaneously, the mouse and keyboard become inoperative for a while.

Is this bug still valid / reproducible with the latest pre-release

Please also try resetting your user profile and let us know if that helps:

Should this be still reproducible for you with the latest LO release please set this bug back to UNCONFIRMED. Should this issue be solved set it to WORKSFORME.

Setting to NEEDINFO until more detail is provided.
