	Ok - interesting :-)

	So - this is something we can (easily?) fix. There should be no serious
performance problem saving as HTML, and it certainly shouldn't crash.
Have you filed bugs for that ? do they have good stack traces ? :-) Are
you using the latest 3.5.1rc2 ? if so, then getting a callgrind trace
again with debug symbols installed for a good trace would be most
helpful; save your file as /tmp/foo.ods and then re-load it:

valgrind --tool=callgrind --simulate-cache=yes --dump-instr=yes ./soffice.bin --splash-pipe=0 /tmp/foo.ods

	And then use callgrind_control to reset profiling just before you do a
manual save as HTML - then calgrind_control --dump just after it, and we
should have a nice profile of what (silly) thing is taking time there.

	Sure - so that's not our problem :-)

	Fine - I understand it better now, hopefully you can provide some
detailed bug reports with the above data :-) Really, this list is not
for filing bugs on though, but discussing how to solve them and concrete
patches etc. for that.

	Thanks !
