Is there a problem running LO-Writer with Linux Mint 16?

I have libreoffice 4.1 and am running it on a 32bit linux mint 16 cinnamon OS.

I don’t use writer very much. I have been using it for the last couple of days and have had problems with the system hanging. I do use calc quite a bit and haven’t experienced any problems like this. At first I thought it was due to the fact that I had two browsers open with multiple tabs, a large calc workbook and a few other apps open.

I opened libreoffice without anything else running and when I was working with writer the system would become unresponsive and hang. I could see that the hard disk light was lit when this happened.

Are there any known issues with libreoffice or libreoffice writer and linux mint 16 cinnamon? Any log files I should look at to get a clue what might be happening?

What were you doing in writer at the time of the event. Were you merely typing?
