Description ccheney 2009-03-28 17:00:19 UTC
Try to copy and paste the table from this html into calc and it will cause calc
to completely hang.

Confirmed on official OOo 3.0.1

OOo does not crash and does not hang, but needs a long time. This special
website contains a lot of calls to, which does
not exist. I think, OOo tries to load all this images and has to wait for a lot
of time outs.

Please disconnect your pc from any network and try to paste the content then.
Does OOo react faster than?

I have read issue 7553 now. Disconnect will not help. But please save that
website to your pc, open the page from your pc with a browser and copy&paste the
content then to the spreadsheet.

It seems to be the same problem as described in issue 7553 for writer, but now
for a spreadsheet.

Even after saving the webpage locally then copy/pasting it took on the order of
15s before OOo responded again.

I had the same problem with Version 3.2.0 (OOO320m12 Build 9483) on Windows.

I tried to copy and paste the table from, which - at least at the
moment - has very slow response times.

When pasting into Calc, it was nonresponsive for multiple minutes, which seems
to be a very long time in regard that the copied section of the page has only
about 10 images.

Saving the page and copy/pasting locally (see attachment), takes only about 10
