How many iterations of this loop did you do in 23 hours?

It would be good to know the average leak per iteration, i.e., (600-90MB)/N == ?

Although few end-users will use AOO like this, it is a good example of
what someone might do if they ran OpenOffice on the server, to
automate document conversions, etc.  So it is important to reduce
memory leaks.

Not in 3.4.
