let me partially retract this statement...
after more accurate test I found that even a "virgin" 3.5.0 has a slight
when start typing... just 2-3 seconds...
try typing "test" and hitting space... you will see that the cursor
freezes after "tes"
then writes the last letter and the space...
with any word you use, there's always this 2-3 seconds freeze after the

it seems that huge autocorrect databases create a second freeze
try this: enter the autocorr subfolder in your user profile (in Windows is
under: User\LibreOffice 3\user\autocorr)
and put the attached acor_.dat file (backup yours first) which has 64000
entries inside it.
start LibO and open a blank writer file.
digit "test" and hit space...
you will see a first 2-3 second freeze after "tes" the the cursor moves to
and another longer freeze (6 seconds maybe) happens before you see the
so there are 2 freeze moments, the first one is shorter and unrelated to
while the second is longer and depends on autocorrection
these tests were done on LibO 3.5.0
