Description lucas 2018-06-27 14:52:15 UTC
- LO: 
- Ubuntu 18.04 (fresh install).

I've experienced that, when working with word 2003 (.doc) files over an SFTP/SSH connection, the CPU consumtion goes high. Situation is solved when saving the file.

It's funny because as soon as I modify the file, the CPU goes high again. I only need to save the file to bring CPU down.

I really do not know it this is something related to my OS or is directly related to LO. But as soon as I save changes, the CPU consumption goes down.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Word 2003 (.doc) file over an SFTP/SSH connection.
2. Modify it. CPU should go high.
3. Save the changes. CPU should go down.

Actual Results:
I can reproduce always the bug.

Expected Results:
I would expect CPU consumption to remain the same whether I'm working with a local file or with a remote file.

Reproducible: Always
