Test DOC file to experiment the bug
With a last generation CPU (Core i3-3225 dual core Ivy Bridge @ 3.3 GHz with Hyperthreading), SSD and 8 GB RAM, some DOC files takes minutes to be opened.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached DOC file
Removing the picture within the DOC file seems to avoid the delay.
Therefore the problem seems to be related with the way LibO opens DOC files with pictures
Wait minutes before the document to be opened
Much quicker file opening is expecting !
Platform (if different from the browser):
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0 Iceweasel/16.0.2
Debian Sid 64 bits with GNOME
Version ID : 350m1(Build:2)
It opens instantly on LO 184.108.40.206 on Windows Vista.
For what it's worth, on Fedora 18 64-bits with LibreOffice 220.127.116.11, it takes around 12-15 seconds to load and display the file on a conventional hard drive and Intel Atom D525 CPU.
not reproducible with LO 18.104.22.168 (Win7 Home, 64bit, i5), it takes around 7 seconds to open the file
Does this issue still persist for you with the latest release of LO? If not, then I would propose to close this bug report.

Unfortunately it seems that this bug is not solved with LibreOffice v4 (Debian with Libreoffice experimental package) although it has evolved : if the file doesn't take too long to be opened, the picture is not displayed at all !
On LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 (Debian Sid) the file takes a long time to be opened and the picture is displayed (but its size and position are noot good) : see screenshot attached
on Ubuntu 13.10 LO 188.8.131.52 LO is slow to open this file but it opens fine.
If this issue persists with LO 184.108.40.206 or above please re-open this bug.

Please read my above comment (#4) : Indeed with newer versions the file don't take too much time to be opened BUT the picture (which I suspect to be related to that bug) is not displayed anymore !
I'm using version 22.214.171.124 on Debian amd64 Sid at present time
I suggest to keep the focus, please open a new separate bug. This bug here was about long opening times. That is no longer an issue. And there's the rule: one bug per problem.
I can't say if the bug is fixed since the picture which may cause the delay is not displayed anymore but I let you decide
