           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

3) Open LibreOffice writer, and paste your clipboard into a blank page.

>From this point forward, LibreOffice Writer will be unusable, and the whole

Expected Results:
I expect the application to either efficiently handle the task or decline to
handle the task.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
So, this is a bug in LibreOffice Writer for sure; if it can't handle the work,
it should decline it.

Additionally, this is bug in the GNOME desktop, because no single application's
workload should ever be allowed to lock up a multi-task desktop environment.
