Description Marco Menardi 2015-11-29 20:15:21 UTC
When trying to create a reproducible case of the desktop freese that happens to me, I copy and pasted crunch of 200 pages of random test with repeated ^V.
At some time writer stops responding and CPU keeps high forever.
Tested with Kubuntu 14.04 GNU/Linux, Xubuntu and Windows7-32.
Seems that disabling automatic spell cheker then the issue does not arises.

Disabling automatic spellchecking makes the freezing go away.

Copy Varney the Vampire and paste it a couple of times to test:

Adding whiteboard perf as this might theoretically be about slowness and not a total hang. I did wait for long periods of time, 15-20 minutes..

Hmm, now it does not freeze. Did the Varney paste so I had about 3400 pages - no problem. Let's close.
