	Quite possibly.

	Can you run soffice instead in:

	strace -ttt -f -s 256 -o /tmp/slog soffice

	and reproduce the bug there ? then we should be able to see in the
strace what is going on (do gzip it & up-load it somewhere ;-).

	Unusual indeed - this piece should be in native code, and shouldn't
perform like that. I hope the strace shows what's going on :-)
