Thank you for taking the time to help us improve LibreOffice.

A bug report would be good, please.  Please add me
<lo_bugs at iseries-guru-com> to the CC.  I can confirm the bug, and I
hope to do a bibisect.

More comments in-line.

My old LibreOffice complains

    This file contains links to other files.  Should they be updated?

When I click <No> it displays the file, but pegs the CPU for the few
minutes that I waited for it.

I presume that you have the linked-to file(s).  Do you get the same
result when you do and do not update the links?

Set the earliest version which you have observed to fail to open the
file.  Anybody who finds an earlier failing version will adjust the
LibreOffice version to the earlier version.
