New ebook viewer hangs on some large EPUB

Bug Description

I have a large EPUB file (10 MB) that when I open it with the new ebook viewer introduced in version 4 of Calibre, it hangs. Sometimes the loading spinning wheel keeps forever, sometimes it loads but when I move page it hangs. The same file I was able to open it without problems in previous version of ebook-viewer.
However, I have another large EPUB file of 19 MB and it opens it well.

I'm running version 4.0 in Ubuntu 19.04.

This is likely a duplicate of 1846751 confirm it by pressing the esc key
when it hangs, if the progress screen goes away and it works, it is
indeed a duplicate. If not, attach the EPUB file and I will take a look.

No, if I press ESC nothing happens and it's still hanged. I attach the file.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
