Heh, this has been my experience with Calc for awhile.  I, too, would 
like to see it "fixed".  However (and here's the annoying part) it's 
rather difficult to track these sorts of vague issues down.  If you can 
find a directly repeatable use case, like "save 5 files over 100KiB in 
size, reload twice, and you can *really* notice the slow down" you would 
be doing the devs (and yourself!) wonders.

Unfortunately, because these gradual slow downs are caused by a number 
of different pieces of the code and in small increments, there's likely 
not a single action to say "Aha! There's the bugger."

One slow down of which I've become aware is in charting with Calc. 
Clicking in and out of a chart is a nightmare after 5 minutes of heavy 
use.  With luck, now that there's an articulated example, someone may 
have more luck tracking down that particular issue.

Glad to have your interest in the project, and hopefully you'll bear 
with LO while the ad-hoc group that we are works on it.  In the 
meantime, any masterful articulation of specific problems you can 
provide will go a long way.
