That's interesting, because the only time I've seen OO.o react slowly 
was with beta builds of the recently released 1.1.1.  Any way you can 
try jogging your memory on this one?  I myself have yet to see this bug 

BTW, speaking of OO.o, it was a small step, but this evening, I was able 
to get one more user using OO.o (1.1), Firefox, and Thunderbird (he used 
to use IE and MS Office but got tired of repeated spyware).  Yes, it was 
on a Windows XP box, but I figured, take him one step at a time.  OO.o 
opened a complex Excel 2002 spreadsheet of his very nicely, to his 
surprise and relief.  He gets used to this and gets more confidence in 
it, he may consider a Free operating system next...perhaps GNU/Linux.
