Breezy 5.10 Preview: OOo2 Wizards hang, no spellcheck

Bug Description

Hello,

I just installed 5.10 preview on a 300MHz, 128MB RAM computer. OOo2 performs
about the same as OOo1 in terms of startup time, that is to say, terrible. But
OOo1 ran reasonbly well once loaded. However, in OOo2, I ran into two MAJOR bugs:

1. Trying to start any of the File-->Wizards... causes the hard drive to thrash
forever and lock up the program. I let it run for several minutes, then killed it.

2. I use all the American English language defaults, but spellcheck doesn't
work at all. The inline checking ignores all errors, and when I click the
"check document spelling" button it immediately says "No errors" and exits the
spellchecker when I hit OK (the only option.) I tried going to
Options-->Language settings, but everything looked OK there.

that's know and won't change. either avoid using the wizards (requiring the java
runtime) or use OOo1, still found in the universe section. 128MB RAM doesn't
look sufficient for OOo2.

that's fixed in the latest version in breezy (1.9.125+2.0beta2-1ubuntu2).
