Loading a template in Writer Version: 22.214.171.124 is desperately slow.
In my experience 10 times slower than Version 5.4 (dev version)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.libreofficedev5.4 --writer -n "/home/rolf/.config/libreoffice/4/user/template/template 1.ott"
2.loffice --writer -n "/home/rolf/.config/libreoffice/4/user/template/template 1.ott"
command 1 (lowriter 5.4) takes 4 seconds
command 2 (lowriter 6.0) takes 70-80 seconds
I'd expect the template to load in roughly the same amount of time.
As it is, it's unbearable.

simple writer template example
After more investigation this bug is in 5.4 as well.
The issue is, if you add extra directories to the template Paths.
If the directory in question is virtually empty, the time to find and load the template is relatively quick.
However, if the directory is large, such as your home directory for example, the loading of the template takes forever.
I can only assume that for some reason of other, the program is checking every file in the directory, to see if it is a template or not, even though you have named the template to be opened.
