Created attachment 93684 [details]
example label text for db source

Problem description: 
When trying to create labels, using a registered db that was created from a LO spreadsheet, CSV, or TXT file, LO hangs requiring a force quit.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a simple text file consisting of a field label in the first line and subsequent label text field in the following lines. Example:
Label one text
Label two text
Label "n" text
2a. Save as .txt or .csv
2b. Save then import into LO Spreadsheet and save.
3. Create a db using Base and one of the files in step 2.
4. Save and register the db
5. Using File/New create a new label using the db from step 4
6. Click on 'New Document'.

Current behavior:
LO Hangs if merge area of Labels is loaded but ok (no label merge text) if merge area is let blank.
Expected behavior:
A created Write document containing the merge fields which print the label lines when printed. 
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

Is this still the case with a current release ? 4204 was particularly buggy on OSX
