I would agree, just used tried to right-click on an unknown word in one
of my existing docs, which is several pages long, and OO locked up my
system for 5 minutes. When I tried to recreate the same event and track
its memory usage, it locked up the system good and tight. I couldn't do
anything except move the mouse, couldn't reboot X, change to terminal
(Ctrl-Alt-Fx) or anything else except a hardware reboot of the system.
