Confirming with

As things go, the performance of this set of steps is pretty bad. The user gets the impression that LO is not responding.

Compared with 

LibreOffice 3.3.0 
OOO330m19 (Build:6)
tag libreoffice-

where scrolling through a large document after/before spellcheck is not brilliant, but still a hundred times more responsive than current master.
