recently I moved from OpenOffice to LibreOffice on my openSuSE 11.3 linux box. 
Libreoffice itself  starts fast on this system which has 8GB of memory and a 
Core i5 processor .

What I noticed is that opening an existing document eg a spreadsheet (.ods) 
takes a very long time. For a spreadsheet that has only 20 lines (filesize, 
18.5 Kbyte), with LibreOffice already running, take about 6 seconds until the 
document is visible. During the 6 seconds the new opened window is simply 

If I close the docuement without leaving LibreOffice and the reopen it again 
its loaded really fast and then also other docuemnts load fast (< 1sec). So it 
seems that when the first docuement is loaded something else happens that take 
quite a long time. When I reastart Libreoffice and open the docuement once 
again, it again takes 6 sec to open it .

This does not only happen with a single special document but with each and 
every docment I try to open. In Openoffice the load time for such a small 
spreadsheet was not even one second.

Any ideas what might be the cause for this delay?

Have a nice day
