Description Chris Withers 2016-01-17 22:21:47 UTC
I was editing a cell, clicked on another sheet tab to reference a cell there.
This resulted in a pinwheel of death, OOo consuming 100% cpu on one core.

Only way to escape was a force quit, which took out the whole app such that other spreadsheets open lose recent changes. While the recovery on restart says it's successful, all changes since other open files were last saved are lost.

Just experienced again, no pinweel this time just a dialog pop up that vanished again quicky, something about std pointer null.

And again, seems reproducible now, not sure I can do any cross-sheet links as a result!

@oooforum - to be clear: #126795 is not a dupe of this, that issue was for a crash while opening a .ods file.

This issue is for the intermittent infinite loop or crash while using the UI to reference a cell on another sheet.
