1 page. Microsoft Word 97-2003 Document. 215,040 bytes

OpenOffice Writer 3.3 and 3.4 Beta OOO340m0 (Build:9583) on Windows and Linux can't open the attached "badfile.doc". Writer starts taking 100% of one cpu and starts growing in memory allocation.

After a few hours it keeps trying to open it and reserving more and more memory.

This single page document opens with no issues with MS Word Viewer on Windows.

Confirmed the endless loop with OOo 3.3 and Linux.
