[Ubuntu 12.04] When exporting large (100 MB) data from a table in LibreOffice Base embedded HSQLDB to a Calc spreadsheet using the procedure outlined in LibreOffice Help, LibreOffice Base and Calc freeze after ~14 min. I can move the cursor though. The same process with a small table (~10 kB) works all right.

How to obtain an error message? Is it really necessary to install the DEB program package libreoffice-dbg and using gdb or strace?

Try running libreoffice from a terminal. See Help for various command line options
