Extremely slow opening Writer document

Hi all, I'm running a 18.04 xubuntu box on which was LO 6.0, and I've run into an issue: a writer document has suddenly become nigh impossible to open - 5 to 6 hours or thereabout. The first few times, I didn't wait that long and I just thought there was some problem with the file, but I couldn't seen any (at the very least, it unpacks with no problem in an archiver). When finally I was able to open it (I could move back and forth within it, but I couldn't edit its properties. I didn't try anything else), my first action was to try and save it under a different name. 24h later and Writer still hadn't saved it when I gave up on that.

I tried to update to 6.2, but no luck. I did check whether there was some problem with LO, but I could open the 'Writer Guide' just fine. Just to compare, my document is 70 pages, with some tables, an index and mostly text in it. Apart from a couple of title styles, I only used linux libertine and biolinum with it. There is one svg image in it (just listing the characteristics in case some known bug has escaped me).

I imagine there is some kind of problem with the file, but I can't just forget it (I have no previous state copy of it). Is there anything anyone knows I could attempt to do ?
