Bug Description

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-draw
libreoffice-draw:
  Installed: 1:3.3.4-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:3.3.4-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.3.4-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:3.3.2-1ubuntu4 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty/main amd64 Packages

3) What is expected to happen in Gnome 2/Classic LibreOffice Draw via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget -c https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/973619/+attachment/3138805/+files/Counters%20in%20Progress.odg -O example.odg && lodraw --nologo example.odg

is when one selects an object, starts typing, moves an object, etc. Draw does not freeze for a second or two.

4) What happens instead is it does. Not only does this slow LibreOffice down, it means some actions, like moving an object to just the right place, can take several attempts, and it makes it easy for LibreOfice to misread mouse/trackpad locations if I'm still moving the mouse/trackpad when it freezes; it also prevents objects from snapping to the grid if they are moved more than about 1/4" at a time.

This is not reproducible in Xubuntu 32-bit.

I seem to have encountered an apport bug:

"Package libreoffice not installed and no hook available, ignoring"

Of course I have LibreOffice installed, I have been using it!
