I can reproduce it in DEV300_m21_en WinXP.

Spreadsheet devs, what is the expected behaviour when Calc encounters a corrupted file? I'm confirming 
this issue, since Mei Ying can reproduce it on a current build.

lpiccilli: which system and which version were you using? I trust you don't expect to open a corrupted file, but we probably do expect to get an error msg, not resources 
being hogged.
