Description of problem:
After typing in a mis-spelled word in oowriter, performing a right-click on the
red-underlined word causes the system to swap hard, making it unusable for 30
seconds (AMD Athlon system 1Ghz).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.on RH9, new user, load oowriter
2.type "asdfg" with auto spell-check on, the word will be red-underlined
3.right-click on the underlined word

Actual Results:  System swaps hard and other windows will not focus until
OpenOffice writer is done spell-checking.

Expected Results:  With minimal delay, a suggestion is made.

I forgot to mention I never noticed this on the RH 8.0 release OpenOffice.

Saw same problem on my Athlon XP 1600+, 256MB DDR SDRAM with a stock install of
RH9, nothing tweaked.

I think it may depend on how much RAM you have installed. It is pretty severe
with only 256MB. Before trying the right-click-correct operation on a misspelled
word, soffice.bin was using 87MB of memory. After I performed this operation and
lost control of my X-windows UI for a while I was able to check the process
again and saw it was consuming 252MB of memory. I'm now using my swap space
quite heavily and that is not good.
