strange behavior in libre calc

Hi -- noticing some strange behavior in libre calc lately. I have columns and rows frozen in a spreadsheet that contains about 3000 rows. I was seeing duplications of row and column entries -- maybe five or so at a time. When I would scroll down the dupes would dissapear. I tried logging in in safe mode but the problem persisted. I had two worksheets and both had frozen rows and columns. I unfroze both and am now evaluating.

Has anyone seen this behavior? My best guess is that it has to do with freezing columns / rows in large spreadsheets.

Please test changing OpenGL in Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/View

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I had already looked at that and in my setup, GL is 'currently disabled.' I had hoped that might fix the problem because it can result in strange behavior as others have noted. But not in this case.

So far (after unchecking the 'freeze cells' option) I have not seen the problem of duplicating rows and columns appear. However, it is and has been intermittent so I want to continue to evaluate.
