Sample file that opens normally on 4.1 or earlier, but not on 4.2

if I open the sample file on calc, Calc will freeze.

However it will open normally on previous versions: 3.6, 4.0, 4.1

I think it happens only when the Same Cell contains Arabic and English letters at the same time.

The sample file is generated from Microsoft Visual Foxpro

I am using ubuntu 13.04 to open the file

Where is this attachment? I can't find it, seems to be a link, not the file itself. Please attach the file itself.

Best regards. JBF

JBF: right-click the test file when visiting this bugzilla page in your browser > save file as...

That way I retrieved the Test.xml fill, so that works. Confirmed:

This too sounds like another manifestation of Bug 72470, which has already been fixed in the 4.2 branch.

The file opens fine with my local build.

Please check this again when you get a more recent build that has the fix for Bug 72470.
