Re: File causes lockup

Will do what I can. The names occur multiple time on different sheets, including in the sheet names, so it is many, many times to sort out. Unfortunately, we've been sent explicit instructions that linking names and student numbers in files that are shared with non-authorized staff is a no-no under Ontario privacy legislation.

Some teaching assistants sent me a file related to assignment marks that has a sheet per student (about 60 sheets), each with graphics. This will not load in Gnumeric 1.8.2 that comes with Ubuntu Hardy. There is lots of disk activity for over 5 mins, and no keyboard or mouse control of machine. Even Ctrl-Alt-Bsp and Ctrl-Alt-Del gave no response. I eventually had to hit the power. Confirmed with 2 tries. OO and kspread seem OK, as does Excel 2007 in WinXP.

Sounds like we're over allocating memory.

Any chance of fuzzing the student names in a different application
and sending of a copy ?
