LibreOffice Writer freezes whilst manipulating image

Bug Description

A 3000*4000 px rotated jpeg image was inserted into a blank document.
After anchoring the image to page, attempting to move the image on the page causes the program to freeze.
The program appears to be locked up in an infinite loop, consuming 100% of one processor core.
Memory usage cycles frequently (and wildly) from ~64 MiB to ~130 MiB.

Lizhou Sha, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. Could you please attach the jpeg file that when inserted into a blank document, demonstrates this problem?

Here is a test image that should replicate the bug.

Actually, now that I tried to replicate the bug on my own, I noticed that it was stuck in a loop trying to automatically save the document.
I had set LibreOffice to save auto-recovery information every minute, and to save the document itself at the same time.
The infinite loop did appear at around the time the autosave was due to happen.
In all of these instances, I have not actually saved the document to disk, i.e. chosen a filename for it.

Could this be a bug in the code for saving the document?
