Downgrading is probably the best course, but the performance issue looks 
like it's fixed in the current snapshot as well. The snapshots install 
independently of the stable releases, so that might also be a 
possibility for an easier fix until 2.3.1 is released. I have 2.3 from 
F7 and OO.org, as well as snapshots for 2.3.1 and 2.4 currently 

Obviously, it's a snapshot, so it could be unstable--you'd have to 
remember that and make sure you have safe backups, but hopefully you're 
doing that already.
