LibreOffice too slow for flash drive use?

Running LOP on flash drive is too slow for use. Is anybody else seeing this? Is anybody able to run this on flash drive w/o lagging - Typing, toolbars, menu items all take up to about 5 sec to respond. I started mentioning this in this post in this node: http://portableapps.com/node/26448, but thought this may need it's own topic.
I tried my flash drive on a couple of machines, all using WinXP, with and without anti-virus. To see if it is portableapps or LibreOffice related or not and there was no change - still slow. I then tried the other portable package from the people I'm not going to mention here, but lets justs say there's an "X-" in it. Their version was no better - same lag time. I also saw that they have their version of the OpenOffice 3.3 too. I tried that and wouldn't you know it works perfectly without the slowness. So, to me it seems LibreOffice is doing something different than the OpenOffice version in the way it handles it's resources.
For now I'll go back to the Portableapps OO v3.2.0 for now, because that worked perfectly on flash drive. I would rather not keep using the other peoples version of 3.3. Any thoughts?
