Screenshot of the problem in Writer

If I try to insert a new paragraph before the table in attachment #154864 [details] there is a small ~two seconds delay (on my old-ish laptop) with hourglass icon before the table layout is recalculated. Interestingly deleting the new paragraph and re-adding it is fast, but adding one more new is not.
In 6.4 and before this went much more smoothly.

Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open attachment #154864 [details] 
    2. Add a new paragraph before the table

Actual results:
Each new paragraph takes about two seconds on wait.

Expected results:
Instant result.

tdf#104425 sw: split rows w/large min height (fix layout loop)

Before this it was possible to add so many empty paragraphs that pushed the table to the next page. With this about at the middle of the page several seconds of pause happens. Which is not exactly what happens today.

Can't reproduce it on Arch Linux w/
Version: 6.4.5.2
Build ID: 6.4.5-2
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.7; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: it-IT (en_GB.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-GB
Calc: threaded

if I try to add a new paragraph (press Enter key)
LO adds new lines instantaneously without CPU spikes
BUT adding new lines do not move table that stays at the original position and new lines will be added in the background of the table

See screenshot

Took a perf trace of a single new line.
It's still slow.

I might have absentmindedly used some incorrect version for testing, so uploading a trace taken with an --enable-symbols build
