I had the same issue, and found a fix on the Internet. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10. Apparently this affected some OpenOffice installs. It didn't affect me until I moved to LibreOffice. You need to modify your hosts file as per the instructions here:
It worked perfectly for me.

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

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
