Either with or without Hongli's patch, that takes a very long time for me on
my laptop.  I don't notice any great difference. If you expect the
difference to be noticeable, could you please try Hongli's patch yourself?

Interstingly, even without the patch it did not always seem to succeed.
Gnumeric would stop it's intensive CPU use and the Gnumeric UI would become
responsive again, but pasting into gedit did not always produce anything. It
did work once, but I don't think I did anything differently. Copying smaller
ranges of cells worked fine.

Quite apart from this patch, I guess that applications should have some
visual feeback when copying and pasting take minutes, instead of having
unresponsive Uis for minutes. Of course Excel on Windows has the same
