      Attached are screen shots of the Fraunhofer logo I took using LO 
4.0. One was on a 32 bit laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with 2 GB RAM 
and the other on a 64 bit tower with 2 GB of RAM and the 64 bit Ubuntu 
12.04 LTS. Are these showing the proper logo?
      In both cases, I use these settings (Tools > Options > LOdev): 20 
steps; Use for LOdev, 255 MB; Memory per object, 2 MB; Remove from 
memory after, 1:00; and Number of objects, 252. For Impress because of 
the number of graphics, perhaps these settings rather than the default 
ones should be used.
      The tower opened the presentation with no problems. The laptop 
took much longer to open.
      Additional tests using one of my presentations (1.3MB): The tower 
opens it with no problems. However, LO 3.5.7 and (downloaded 
from the website) on the laptop will not open it. I also have the Ubuntu 
version of LO 3.5.4, and it opens the presentation. So, this bug is not 
only a serious problem on 32bit computers, but also something that has 
been around for a while that no one has reported.
