Hi. I can reproduce this issue using LibreOffice Calc.
Since this appears to affect multiple programs, I changed the product from "Writer" to "LibreOffice".
As requested by raal, I have tried reproducing this with different backends, the results are:
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk localc -> freeze
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen localc -> freeze for several seconds, then unfreeze, then freeze again in loops
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 localc -> no freeze
* LibreOffice Version: 18.104.22.168.1+
* LibreOffice Build ID: 1:5.2.4-2
* Gnome Shell version: 3.22.2
* OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile
* OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 13.0.3
* OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 13.0.3
* Operating system: Debian GNU/Linux testing
Guillaume: thanks. You could try getting a valgrind log of the trace: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugReport/Debug_Information
Note that you need debug symbols.
To get the valgrind log, after entering the frozen state, you can kill the soffice process.
Debug informations are not available for Debian testing amd64. Sorry, I can't install them.

Ok, you could try this, if you have enough disk space: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@70-TDF-dbg/current/
You can just extract it with tar -xvzf and then run program/soffice
I think I forgot to reply when the test was suggested.
So the result was:
I could not reproduce when I ran a daily build back in february.

Ok that is promising. Maybe you can try 5.4 when it is released later this summer: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan/5.4#5.4.0_release
Libreoffice 5.4 is available today in Debian buster -aka testing.
I could not reproduce the issue in Libreoffice 5.4 on Debian buster :)

Fantastic news as freezing is a serious issue. Let's close as WFM.
