	First thing to do is - file a bug :-) secondly - it would be great to
know if this is a regression from OO.o :-) thirdly - it would  be
wonderful to know what kind of use pattern you're using - if it is
load/edit/save/close in a loop - then - there are some known memory
leaks that cause serious grief (sadly) and chasing these is a matter of
time and effort and extreme slowness using:

	valgrind --leak-check=full ./soffice.bin >& /tmp/val-log

	and filing the log after a set of user interactions.

	An easier way to prod this is to use:

	pmap `pidof soffice.bin` | grep writable

	and watch that as you do various operations; particularly looking for
jumps, or any slow increment while you're doing things.

	Anyhow - would be great to have help with this ! :-)

	All the best,
