Slow Scroll when Highlighted in Calc

Bug Description

I work on large data sets in Calc and scrolling down when I have everything selected is really slow. These databases consists of thousands of rows so maybe this is to be expected but the scrolling function is not slow unless I have things highlighted. Thanks!

Do you still have this problem with the new version of OOo in the ppa at ?

I don't have any documents that are nearly that large to test with, if you happen to have one with non-sensitive data that you can attach to the launchpad bug report it would be helpful.

I attached a file that only has around 300 rows and 4 columns. Maybe it's just me but when nothing is highlighted the scrolling is very smooth and goes one by one while when I do a select all on sheets the scrolling is a bit laggy and jumps (not smooth at all). Thanks!

Jmadero, unreproducible in LibreOffice Calc via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget && localc -nologo Vocab.ods

Ctrl+A and scrolled around, no difference from not doing so. Does this work for you? If using Lucid or Maverick feel free to perform at the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y install libreoffice-calc
