Thanks for the report.

In this case I think the boolean operation is just extremely slow for some reason, because it does unfreeze after a bit for me.
That shouldn't be the case for such a simple situation though-- there are only 2000 output vertices, so I'd lean toward calling this a bug.
But I'd understand if another developer wanted to call it a "performance improvement request" also, which we wouldn't keep on the tracker.
