300 page document with one table

This 300 page document has one large table. This cause LibreOffice Writer to become very slow and unusable.

Abiword does not fare much better. With WebODF, the document can be edited but slowly.

Blah, ignore the previous comment, I tested with OOO_EXIT_POST_STARTUP=1.
If I open normally, it hangs after opening.
