I'm running sarge, so I tried installing it from backports.org, but it
wouldn't install. It depended on some other package that didn't exist
anywhere (don't remember which).
As for my original problem, I've discovered that when I try to open a
document and it appears to hang, if I wait long enough (several
minutes) it eventually opens. Then opening other documents happens
quickly. I thought the problem was cured, but when I logged in again,
I again had to wait a long time to open the first document.
