Description j4m0 2010-06-25 17:46:03 UTC
Recently we received several important spreadsheets from our partners.
All of them have XLS format. And we cannot open none of them because 
of the error. "Adapt row height" appears to start after document importing.
Spreadsheet consumes CPU extensively and as a result it freezes.

We've also tried to open it with excel 2007. It opens it without problems

I've attached a problematic document to this issue.

Works fine with LibO 3.3.1. Hangs with OOo 3.3.0 (both vanilla versions on Ubuntu 10.10).

Cross platform bug IMHO.

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 (x64)
Apache Open Office 3.4.1 AOO341m1 Build 9593 Rev 1369110

My test:
Now open file ok, but needs be very patient (on my HP G62 open file, using Open Office Calc, in 5 minutes and 35 seconds vs. only 3 seconds using Ms Office Starter 2010).

So I change Issued type in Enhancement
Like 67412. I don't define Duplicate because in my opinion in this example we have some difference with 67412 and may be the solution for bug  67412 don't be sufficient for this bug

It seems there are no reasons to call <AdjustRowHeight> or <UpdateAllRowHeights> in loading process. Removing these two calls will dramatically improve the loading performance of spreadsheet documents with over 1000 rows.

can you explain this further, why do you think that there is no need to call this functions. I don't understand it.
