I confirmed this glitch on a draw file (odg, newsletter, mixed text and
graphics) on, for the repackaged version.  This newsletter
worked fine in 4.4 and even re-writing it from scratch did not work.

The impress ppt was fine, although a bit slow to change slides. No
issues so far opening and using various text files (odf)

5.0.4 had random glitches with the same odg newsletter, but no other
issues observed.

5.0.5 works ok except for the draw component (odg crashes on all files:
4.4 created odg or new).  ch3.ppt opens but is initially slow; the
bigfile.odt crashes here but works ok with 4.4.

Maybe worth considering the fully compiled version if that seems more
