> Hi there,
> FYI, a large number of Calc freeze problems may be attributed to the
> same root cause, which I fixed for Bug 72470
> https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=72470
> The problem code kicks in when you have a document that has at least one
> cell containing mixed script types.  Pretty much any action can trigger
> this.  Typing a new value into a cell, copy-n-pasting a range of cells,
> changing cell format, inserting cells, sorting, you name it.
> But what does mixed script types mean?  Internally Calc categorizes text
> language types into 3 script types: latin, asian, and complex.  Latin
> covers the western languages such as English, French, German etc, Asian
> covers Chinese, Japanese, Korean (and Vietnamese?), and Complex covers
> Arabic, Hebrew etc.  If you see a bug report that claims Calc freezes
> after doing ABC, and it only does in the new 4.2.0 release (or beta and
> RC before that), check the content of the file and see if it has mixed
> script types.  If so, it may be caused by the same root cause as the
> above bug.  Please re-check those bugs again with the build that
> contains the fix for that bug.
> I've browsed through bugzilla last night, and I saw quite a number of
> them that may fit the profile.
> Thanks,
> Kohei

​Kohei, any chance of a patch for ​Linux (in my specific case, deb) users
being posted in the near future, in addition to those you've already posted
for Windows and Mac users, respectively ?...
