Description of problem:
After upgrading the the latest version of OpenOffice, when I right
mouse click a misspelled word it starts to hog RAM. So much, that it
leaves my system barely usable until it releases the extra RAM it's
hogged. For example it takes up to 1 minutes to get a konsole screen.
Overall it lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 minutes before this ends. I
doubt that it's my laptop. I have a 1.6G Centrino Processor with 256M
ram and 1G swap.
I have tested this 2 times in a row and got the same results both times:
Perform a fresh boot into run level 5.
Log into KDE
Start OpenOffice and create a new text document.
Start typing a misspell a word.
When OpenOffice underlines it in red indicating it is misspelled right
mouse click it.
Listen to hard drive + watch hard drive light go crazy.
Attempt to get to a konsole <- this could take a couple of minutes.
Do a top and hit M to sort by memory usage.
Watch OpenOffice's memory usage shoot up. Durning these 2 tests it
hit just over 80% before winding down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start OpenOffice, create new text doc, mispell a word and right
mouse click on it.
Actual Results: OpenOffice starts chewing up RAM (Great terminology,
huh?), making my system temporary unusable.
Expected Results: Drop down window w/ options and spelling
suggestions. No real hit to RAM
If there is anything I can do to generate more data let me know.
