before you jump to any assumptions, the bug is WEIRD !!!!! I'm using version below, and have no problems. LibreOffice Writer Version: Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)
under DEBIAN/jessie LibreOffice Writer = LOW

EXCEPT.... one file, when I open it, it takes approximately 2 minutes before I can use it. the computer seems locked up. This file is approx 200KB. was created with LOW and was fine up until yesterday. it has a lot of URLs in it. it is always in the WEB LAYOUT view. I open the file and LOW becomes unresponsive. I opened the file in abiword, no problem. I saved the file into pure text. then I opened it in gedit, and saved it again in text. as text the file is only 37K. I opened it in LOW, it opened fast. I typed few characters, fine. I clicked on web layout view, and LOW became unresponsive. had to 'kill' it. I repeat, it happens only with one file. all the other files that are much larger, have no problem. I researched and did not find anything similar. I followed few recommendations for increasing memory usage, blablah. nothing worked.

is there some tool to scan this file for "I_DON'T_KNOW_WHAT" as to figure out why this file bogs down libreoffice writer, but not abiword.
