Description Dan Essin 2014-06-04 18:59:13 UTC
Problem description: Hang after paste

Steps to reproduce:
1. I copied a number from the web site of a financial institution
2. Pasted it into a cell
3. hourglass appeared and remained until I killed the task after waiting 5 minutes
4. Doesn't happen with all sites. There must have been extra, invisible characters placed on the clipboard along with the number. LO should have ignored them or complained about a bad format rather than hanging.

Current behavior:

Expected behavior:

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release
Last worked in: release
