Good news and ...

I tried using the SlackBuild in libreoffice-review with the ch3.ppt test 
file and found no problem. I had it running several hours in the 
background while doing other things. Occasionally I would flip through a 
few pages and all was OK.

I also opened a test file mentioned in the first of the bug reports 
above and it also worked without any problem.

The only problem I found was when opening a file provided by someone 
else via the libreoffice-dev list. Interestingly, they claim that the 
official downloaded version (I'm equating that with the repackaged 
libreoffice-review version) loads and runs the test file fine but their 
own self-compiled version loads the file very slowly (>10 sec.). A file 
demonstrating the problem is provided at 
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=121623 .

I found that the version in libreoffice-review loads that file 
(bigfile.odt) in 2-3secs but crashes immediately loading is complete. 
This occurred 100% of the times I tried it. The new LibreOffice 
build-from-source SlackBuild, which I have a personal interest in, 
handles it OK - loads in 2-3secs and keeps running. Still, I'm not sure 
what what to make of the test file - whether its a valid test of 
anything - since it looks like gibberish when loaded.

BTW Calligra Author opens bigfile.odt OK (under 3 secs).

Not sure if that helps you decide anything but that is what I found.
