Hello, I am trying to use Draw for creating pictures having large number of
simple objects, up to several thousands of them per file. To give you some
idea, think of the games of go or checkers. 

Yesterday I was able to keep several such files open at the same time (I
knew if I opened too many files LO would die with generalized diagnostics
message, and this started happening only after I installed LO 

Today, after installing the latest Windows update, I found that I could
hardly open only one of those files. I really thought I lost it. Fortunately
it opened after I closed everything else. 

Attempting to open a second file at first I saw an empty window with moving
green progress indicator bar.  At some moment the window would silently

The moment of disappearance apparently depended on the size of the open
file. I found that I was able to open two small files. The bigger was the
first file, the sooner the process opening the second file would die.  

I have the latest JRE (1.7.0_40). Increasing LO's memory settings did not
change anything.


I can now tell that the same crush happens as I add the objects to the
drawing. Working with a file I copied around 200 objects at once and tried
to past them. The window silently disappeared (another one opened at this
time survived).

Apparently I saw the number of objects (or some other parameter) restricted
two times: first in LO (but at least I was receiving diagnostic
message and was able to recover the file), next with the latest update of
Windows 8, and this time it got bad.
