I've got a spreadsheet (ods-file) that crashes libre office calc (or more precisely, all open libre office programs are closed) instantly when I try to open it. The same ods-file, opens without any trouble in Open Office calc.
Restoring the file also crashes libre office.
Also, I was able to open the spreadsheet in an earlier version of LibreOffice. (Not sure exactly what version I used before I upgraded to 3.5)
If anyone wants to have a look at the spreadsheet, I think I would be able to remove/replace sensitive data and send the file.

I have tried to open this file and on my computer LibreOffice v3.5.1 on Windows XP it opens up successfully. Yes it opens up some minutes in the middle of opening I get LibreOffice not responding, but if waiting for some minutes it opens up successfully without a problem.
Maybe your profile is corrupted. For test I suggest to close LibreOffice, rename a profile "user" directory to something like "user_backup", start LibreOffice and open attached file. After test just rename back profile to original name.

Sorry for the late response.
Anyway, a spreadsheet template which causes the crash can be downloaded from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/297044/mal.ots
Files based on this template also makes LO crash. I'm running version 22.214.171.124.
BTW, I was not able to get the attach feature to work, I tried Opera, Firefox and IE...
Kind regards KML

Thanks to L-user for suggesting renaming the profile user. I did, and a new profile was created, and the file now opens OK!
