Paste hangs LibreOffice Calc

Routinely, when using copy/paste in Calc, it hangs. The only way to recover is to kill the process tree and start again, usually losing any unsaved work.

Anyone else having this issue? This is happening to me on very different PCs (although both are running Win7 x64 w/8GB ram - one is a Lenovo laptop the other is a Dell Precision workstation), different spreadsheets, and has been a problem since OpenOffice (I switched to LO when the branch occurred). I keep everything up to date (I am currently running 3.5.1) and it still continues to happen.

This also happened in OpenOffice before the fork, so it must be some kind of legacy code issue brought over from that branch (just to help narrow it down in code review).

Can you please check it with 3.5.2. I fixed several bugs around copy/paste between 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 in calc. If this does not fix your problem open a bug report with a detailed instruction at:

I reset the LibreOffice user profile - still happens. This has continued to happen throughout multiple generations of LibreOffice (it is some kind of bug retained from the old OOo build, as it used to happen before the fork as well.
Here, four years later, it is still happening, across multiple hardware (laptops, desktops, different makes and models), multiple different OSes (Windows 10 x64 now - with a CLEAN build, btw, not an upgrade).
Common denominator is LibreOffice, and I’m not alone in this bug.

LibreOffice drives me crazy because hangs after paste. I think, it hangs when is running any other Java application, no mather if LibreOffice in config has enebled or disabled using java.

Libreoffice Calc does not use any java.

Its insane that this bug is still open. Dont ask me to reset my user profile. I have just installed Libreoffice 5 on a fresh windows7 installation, and the first paste hangs libreoffice. Its not usable like that. Sorry.

Try resetting the user profile:
