Problem description: Libre Office Writer freezes upon opening a particular file.
If you open the attached file in MS Word and save it to the Doc format, Writer does not freeze anymore when opening the new Doc file.
I checked bug 73936. Thinking it could be the same issue, I replaced all non breaking spaces with normal spaces, but that did not help.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached file.
Current behavior: Writer freezes and must be killed to close.
Expected behavior: Writer should not freeze.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
Please don't open a bug which is reporting the exact same problem. The other bug says you can't open the file - this one says libreoffice freezes - this is the exact same issue about the same exact file.

No, it is not. Why do you think that?
I see that there is no file attached. I thought I had attached a file.
Did you remove the attached file? If I did not attach any file, how can you know whether the file is "the same exact file"?
As I wrote in my original bug description, I do not think this is the same problem as bug 73936. The file attached to bug 73936 can be fixed by replacing all non breaking spaces with normal spaces.
The file attached to this bug *cannot* be fixed by replacing non breaking spaces by normal spaces.

File that freezes Writer
It was because there was no file attached and only a link to the other bug ;) But all is well that ends well - thanks for attaching :) Marking as UNCONFIRMED as it's the appropriate status
Great, thanks for fixing the status. :)
Reproducible with LO 126.96.36.199.0+ under Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64.
The file opens fine but LO starts immediately in an endless loop and it eats the whole memory. It seems that the problem could be in the page count. Indeed the status bar show an information like "459 10/11" pages.
Best regards. JBF
This is almost undoubtedly a dupe - found it - adding as "see also" as I'm not 100% sure that it's the same problem but from JBF's remark - seems likely ;)

File saved again in MSO doesn't freeze Writer
But, it we open the same file and save again as DOCX in MSO (I did that in MSO 2010), it doesn't freeze Writer, both if saved as compatible or not.
