Excel 2007 SP2 crashes when chart added with large amounts of data

The following typical code will crash Excel 2007 SP2 if the active sheet has
a large amount of data (I have in excess of 300 cols and 1000 rows)

Dim chObj as ChartObject
Set chObj = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add(xLeft, xTop, xWidth, xHeight)

To solve the problem select a subset of the active sheet prior to creating
the chart.

ActiveSheet.Range("A1:A2").Select
Set chObj = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add(xLeft, xTop, xWidth, xHeight)

This seems to produce a clean chart without any data series which can be
added later.

The other typical code for creating a chart with shapes has the same problem:

Dim MyChart as Chart
Set myChart = ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddChart(xLeft, xTop, xWidth, xHeight).Chart

and is corrected the same way

ActiveSheet.Range("A1:A2").Select
Set myChart = ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddChart(xLeft, xTop, xWidth, xHeight).Chart
myChart.SeriesCollection(1).Delete

Unfortunately, this method plots the selected data. The
SeriesCollection(1).Delete cleans the chart that is now ready to have the
data series added programmatically.
