Aspose.Words UpdatePageLayout() does not return

Using Aspose.Words

When the following code executes UpdatePageLayout( ), it never returns from that method call. Is this something that’s fixed in a future version?

The Word doc used in the sample is zipped and attached. (152.8 KB)

using Aspose.Words;

namespace TestAspose
public class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
Aspose.Words.License license = new Aspose.Words.License();

        var loadOptions = new Aspose.Words.LoadOptions();
        loadOptions.LoadFormat = LoadFormat.Auto;

        Document myDoc = null;
        myDoc = new Document("c:\\AhrnDoc.docx", loadOptions);
