Description of problem:
After a "recent" update using yum, calc appears to hang when I select "Save As..." for a new spreadsheet. I say "appears to" because, while filing this bug after having this happen several times, the file dialog finally appeared. I did not check the actual wall clock time, but it was a few minutes :-(
I have openoffice.org 1.1.3-9.5.0.fc3 installed, but it was happening prior to this update; sorry, I didn't keep track of what the previous install I had was. It did start recently, but I did not keep details of when I had done various updates. The problem does not seem to affect saving *old* files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch soffice.bin -calc
2. Edit a couple of cells, doesn't really seem to matter
3. Click File->Save As... and wait a *long* time
Actual Results: After a few minutes, the file dialog appeared.
Expected Results: I expect it to pop up really fast, seconds, not minutes
The system is a lightly loaded dual 2.4GHz Xeon with 2GB of RAM.
Having been bitten a month ago by a silently failing drive, I've checked the smart status on all four drive (2 separate RAID-1 systems) and all check okay.
The home directory where this is trying to write is an NFS filesystem.
cmc: any thoughts?
This problem no longer occurs on my system(!).
The version of openoffice is unchanged.
Is there a way to find the install times for packages; i.e., when I last updated
something via yum? I'm wondering if I did indeed update gnome-vfs.
Since I can no longer reproduce this, I suppose you may as well close it out...
I reckon it was gnome-vfs, there was problems there
