Operating System: Windows 7 (Service pack 1)
Open Office version: 3.4.1 Build 9593

How I replicate it:

Test 1:
1. Open the original file.
2. Press ctrl +f.
3. In the "search for" field enter "," and In the "replace with" field enter
4. Click on the "Replace all" option.
5. It tried to reload the file for a while, and after a while the writer

Test 2:
1. Open Writer.
2. Randomly type something i.e. my name with "," as delimiter.
3. Copy and paste this text again and again to create a very large file.
4. Press ctrl +f.
5. In the "search for" field enter "," and In the "replace with" field enter
6. Click on the "Replace all" option.
7. Try to reload for a while and prompt me to force close the file.

However, if the file is not very large, it works properly. The file I created
is pretty large and it didn't crash at all the attempts.
