document witch freezes calf if cells sorted in natural mode

I have a document where a column has text values with numbers after letters and spaces (user case = addresses: street number, like "Alabama Av. 35").

If I select all the cell with those value and issue a natural sort, calc freezes

Attacched document triggers the bug
Comment 1 Paolo Benvenuto 2016-05-11 08:57:04 UTC
I'm quite sure the bug wasn't in v. 4
Comment 2 Aron Budea 2016-05-11 09:54:42 UTC
Reproduced in both in Linux and Windows.
Not reproduced in (Linux+Windows), (Windows), and with master build (Windows).
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2016-05-11 09:59:58 UTC
Raising severity to major, since it completely freezes Calc.
Comment 4 m.a.riosv 2016-05-11 22:27:50 UTC
Not reproducible.

Just one question, is there perhaps a relation to bug 99627?
Comment 7 Aron Budea 2016-05-12 10:22:42 UTC
(In reply to raal from comment #5)

Yes, I tested on master, and it appeared fixed, hence the regression-related tags.

(In reply to Crecida Müller from comment #6)

It very well could be the same issue.

I also tested with release candidate now. Issue is not reproducible.
Please use this, or the final 5.1.3 version when it's released.

(In reply to raal from comment #5)

Sorry, I meant the backportRequest:5.1 tag, not the regression-related ones (but the it turned out it's already fixed in 5.1, I just haven't tested the RC version).
