I have a problem that I am unable to resolve and there doesn't appear to
be any info on it (google, search forums etc). I'm running opensuse 11.0
x86_64 and the opensuse packaged openoffice 2.4.1 under KDE 3.5.9.

I have a spreadsheet converted from Excel and have re-created the macros
within calc. These are nearly complete (in that I have a few actions to
add), but I am having a problem with a "memory leak/runaway" - ie when I
- go to tools->macros->run macro
- add macros to a new toolbar through tools->customise->toolbars
after a short time disk activity starts and "sysinfo" shows the free
memory down from 1.4GB + 300MB Caches to 14MB + 30MB Caches with free
swap down from 3.8GB to 1.9GB and everything virtually stops :-)

Organising or running macros through "tools->macros->organise macros"
doesn't exhibit any problems.

Using kubuntu (32bit) in Virtualbox doesn't show the same symptoms.

I have downloaded the OOo versions of 2.4.1 and 3.0 to see if there is a

Any suggestions on resolving the problem welcome.
