Hi Dave,

This solved the issue for me. I had problems with 3.3.0, and did this back then, and do it with every new install I do:

In terminal, do gksudo gedit /etc/hosts

This does indeed work for a blank calc sheet, but opening a file on
the command line is still very slow. It's actually faster to open the

file. (Or just load it from the normal file list.)
