@Marcus & @brinzing:  Having thought it through some more, I suspect that it
isn't actually 'frozen'.  It might complete if one were patient enough; but
since there's no indication of progress at all, and no reaction to user input,
one is most likely to assume 'frozen' and kill the process.

Perhaps this should be re-typed to 'enhancement' and request that (a) some sort
of real progress indicator be added, and/or (b) that there be a way to cancel
an operation that's taking far too long, and/or (c) a warning up-front that the
task is going to take a very long time.

I remember a possibly related report, 102344, that requested a count of the
number of times a defined name was used.  If that count were available, it
would certainly make a real progress indicator and/or time warning possible.
