Bug ID: 103181
           Summary: Object selection and edit freezes LibreOffice for tens
                    of seconds
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: rc
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Draw

On 64 bit Arch Linux, updating Gnome to 3.22 (which is on Wayland by default)
brought back the LibreOffice bug 1373933
( dealt with in Fedora.

Description of problem:
This problem seems to affect all LibreOffice apps, but is mostly visible in
Impress and Draw. Any time you select an object (a shape, a block of text,
etc), the app freezes for several seconds, using 100% CPU. If you want to edit
the object (a block of text), again the app freezes for a few seconds, and then
the selection is changed to an edit cursor and you can finally type text. With
this slow speed, Impress and Draw are completely unusable for any serious work.
Plus the running app's icon does not show.

The current version is stated as 5.2.2-1, last updated on 2016-10-01 08:32 UTC.

Starting Gnome on X instead of Wayland doesn't help.
But the fix from comment 4 in the original bug works and brings the icon back:

before launching e.g. 
libreoffice --draw

The bug apparently has to do with emitting ::style-set by name.
GtkStyle is deprecated, but LO still emits ::style-set quite a bit, so lets at
least not be slow while doing it.

The bug has apparently been fixed in Fedora for libreoffice-
