Reassigned to ES.

I was able to reproduce it on Linux with OOo 2.0.1 as well.

I reproduced the bug with OOo 2.0.1 RC2 under Win XP Pro SP2 and all Patches.

I did not wait 5 minutes for an answer by OOo, but the bug is 100% reproducable.

I was able to reproduce this, WindowsXP, src680m142. After a while the dialog
appears with a String like "arOffice 7 Document wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.."
The problem is a paste special with source OOo1.x and destination OOo2.0.1
regardless if word processor or spreadsheet. It works well if I try to copy from
one instance of a OOo1.0.1 to another instance.

TRA: The root cause is that both versions OOo1.1.5 and OOo2.0 use a clipboard
data type 'Star Object Descriptor (XML)' but the content of this clipboard data
type has been changed incompatible between both versions. When OOo2.0 now tries
to read the clipboard format in question copied by an OOo1.1.5 wrong data will
be read which leads to a long long string (>28000 characters). Rendering this
long string in the listbox finally seems to be so long.
Because the scenario (working with OOo1.1.5 and OOo2.0 in parrallel on the same
machine) is too rare/unimportant and resources are too limited this is 'Office

It looks like Calc is affected, too. Please have a look at issue 68563.

I think this is a framework bug and duplicate to  Issue 68563.
