Maybe, maybe this issue does not exist in a clean Jaunty 9.04

My computer runs Ubuntu 9.04, which is upgraded from previous version.
This may not be seen as a clean install. Because this is an upgrade,
and I have many programs installed... What is interesting, I lived
same situation in another desktop computer who has not so much
software, only server components, such as apache, postfix, ehcp
(control panel) and so on..

Anyway, i think that, even somebody installs on a non-new Ubuntu or
similar distro, koffice or kword should handle those situations and
should clean up itself... This is a very generic situation, " i am
using an Ubuntu, and installing koffice.. " thats it..
By the way, other software on my desktop runs almost flawlesly... I
mean, the Ubuntu and other software is working good...

Thank you for your helps, i may do any other test if you wish...

Last status: kword-kspread still starts very slow...

see you...
