In Ubuntu you can get that "task monitor" by
System - Administration - "System Monitor"
You can change which version of java you are using in LibreOffice by
Tools - Options - Java
or even switch it off completely from there. If the thing still works but the slow-downs stop then you know it's java slowing it down. It would be interesting to know which version of java you are using.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04, the Libre Office 220.127.116.11 with 1 GB ram. I
rarely go into my swap partition. When in calc, often the system
grinds to a halt. Usually it takes about 15 seconds to allow mouse
pointer change, etc. Meanwhile, I can run Freecell with no slowdown
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
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.
