I am finding the same problem, but with Writer.

I run LibreOffice on OpenSuse 12.1 X64, so I don't think this is problem is specific to the Windows version, although it could be something to do with X64.

At first I thought it could be a problem about exporting to .doc format, as I happened to be working on a Word document. So I saved it as .odt and it still takes about 20 secs per save. I'm not sure how long it was taking before, using LibreOffice 3.4.5, but I have a habit of pressing Ctrl-S every few seconds, and it was saving seamlessly, so I'd guess no more than a couple of seconds.

It's not a particularly large document - the odt file is only 130KiB (the doc version was 1.4 MiB). It is a single table covering about 70 pages, but there are no graphics in it.

I just tried a larger document (1.5 MiB, 59 pages with a lot of complex graphics) and saving that took over 40 secs.

Finally I tried starting a new document, typed a couple of sentences in it and saved. It took only a second or so, but if I remember rightly, previously, this would have seemed instantaneous.
