  Hangs while modifying document (after completion of paste from Wep
  Page with Multiple Images)

Bug description:
  Follow these steps to bring LibreOffice writer to a crawl:

  1) Allow this page to fully load in firefox (in a new tab):

  2) Click on the page and hit ctrl-a, then ctrl-c (coping the entire
  page's contents into memory).

  3) Open LibreOffice writer, and paste your clipboard into it.

  I don't mind waiting for all the images to get loaded. The main point
  here, is that performance is not only slow during the initial paste.
  After the images get fully loaded into the word processing document,
  interacting with the document becomes impractical. Everything you try
  to do makes the application hang for several seconds.

  I have 4 gigabytes of RAM available for LibreOffice writer to use as
  it wishes, but it must be using some type of swap file (instead) while
  I'm modifying this large document. However, I have a really fast
  solid-state hard drive, so you'd think that even that would be fast on
  my machine.

  My machine should have the specs to enable me the ability to handle
  converting this large web page into a word processing document.

  Yes there are other ways to achieve what I'm trying to do, but this
  bug is about how LibreOffice can't handle the job. If it was
  programmed just right, it would make use of the resources my computer
  would gladly provide it, and scale up to this rather intensive task.
