ods file with many hyperlinks

A file with many hyperlinks (90000) is very slow on loading, saving and scrolling is not smooth - hangs for a while every now and then. It is a regression, it worked well for versions to - the slowdown is about 200 times.

Detailed statistics, LO versions downloaded from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

I would also bibisect it, but I was not able to find the right git repository to clone. This information is missing in e.g. in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bibisect

The below commit appears to be where loading this file started to be slow.
I don't see that Henry Castro has a BZ account, so no way to forward this directly

Comment 3 Norbert Thiebaud 2015-08-22 23:32:13 UTC
I confim that reverting the commit 5a646f04cc40fb13f39b16ab452237e5cf324684
on master do put the performance back in 'normal'
and 'slow' does not just describe it.. without the revert I
have a document(sent to the ML by milos sramek) that I basically killed after 5+ minutes cpu trying to load it.
with the revert it load in few seconds...
