In the beginning a lot of files crash because you are missing
component files. After that the problem are all documents creating
problems, either crashing or hanging Libreoffice. You might add a
timeout to prevent hanging but we have nothing in this direction yet.
I have no idea how to prevent crashing.

Then I had the problem that after a crash I had to restart the test so
I tested several files more than once. This is one of the points I
would improve for the next time, the best solution is to move files
when loading finished.

And finally a normal loading is only one part of the process. IMHO the
other equaly important part is to run the test for a random subset of
the files with memcheck. This is incredibly slow especially for a
dbgutil build so I only tested around 500 files with memcheck.

One solution to improve this might be to run the test in parallel. But
as mentionend above the biggest problem is the need for a bit manual
interaction to fix all problems.
