while I am waiting, so that tells me it is not as universal as an
overutilized processor or low on ram, or an Ubuntu issue.



I notice hanging when working with relatively large files in Calc. Also,
I have seen spreadsheets "hang" when there are complex calculations
being done.

How big is your spreadsheet? Also, can you post a copy to nabble? I
understand if you can not post because of the nature of the information.

I went back to see which sheets were giving me problems, but I could not remember specifics, so: Most of my calc files are 3-5 pages long. I have simple math (MDAS) type calcs, sometimes with links between pages. My payroll file is about 25 pages long. I use it twice a month minimum and I haven't had a problem with it. This all just started about a month ago. I have been using this box for about 2 years. Of course Ubuntu 12.04 is also about a month old.

I wonder if this is a Java issue. When I ran Suse, there was a monitor that I could have on the screen showing CPU use, Swap use, Ram use, etc. graphically. It would be nice to be able to go backwards in time about 10 minutes to see what was the issue.
