Description Sammy 2003-01-20 21:05:55 UTC
Tested openoffice-1.0.1, 1.0.2 and 643C under Phoebe-2, and rawhide. 
System is Pentium 4, 1.8GHz, with 2GB RDRAM. 
We are running a scientific program, which takes about 177MB of RAM and no disk i/o.  
We have 
been running this program for a long time and it had no effect on openoffice performance. 
Now it does. While all other applications run at normal speed openoffice windows take a  
minute or two two open after every click, e.g. click on the File menu, a minute later you'll see

You may wish to run OpenOffice from the terminal so that you can see messages
displayed to stderr.  Also, providing a strace of the process will assist
developers in seeing what is going on with your system.

A hack in the kernel has been removed and thus OOo which foolishly calls
sched_yield very often is yielded as it requests.
Try rawhide openoffice (e.g. 1.0.2-2).
