Trying to load an (invalid) xml version of the MS 2003 Excel file causes OpenOffice to hang.

E.g.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?mso-application progid="Excel.Sheet"?>
<Workbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns:x2="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/excel/2003/xml" xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40" xmlns:c="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:component:spreadsheet">
<OfficeDocumentSettings xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">
</OfficeDocumentSettings>
<ExcelWorkbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel"/>
<ss:Worksheet ss:Name="Sheet1">
<Table>
<Column/>
<Row>
<Cell><Data ss:Type="String">Test1</Data></cell>
<Cell><Data ss:Type="String">Test2</Data></cell>
</Row>
</Table><x:WorksheetOptions/></ss:Worksheet>
</Workbook>


This will cause the program to hang completely when attempting to open.
Note the xml is not valid, the opening "Cell" and closing "cell" ....

I have tried this with OpenOfiice.org 2.0 and the latest 2.0.3 (as downloaded today), this happens in both versions (running on Windows XP Professional) ... I would not expect this to be loadable, but I would not expect the program to hang!!

Yes, it should be impossible (or at least, really difficult) to crash, freeze, or hang any software! In the Issue Tracker, I filed the issue as a bug report:

Hi,
I have retested this, and it works if I have a connection to the internet...
It could be that this problem is caused by network problems. When this occurred, I had a connection via VPN to a customer environment, that means that I have a valid network connection but can not get onto the internet.
Is it possible that this causes problems when resolving the defined xmlns's??

I will recheck it again without any network connection to see what happens ...

Many thanks,
Brian
