Start OOo Writer 3.1. Right-click somewhere onto the empty document. Even on a
fairly fast machine, it takes up to 2 seconds (feels like 3-5 secs) until the
popup menu is shown.

Experience is similar in Calc and Impress, depending of course on the context. 

But the menu almost never appears immediately, which is what I as a user expect.

It seems that it depends somehow on your machine. I have a fairly slow VM and
context menu opens up real fast without delay. I've tried with OOo 3.1.1 and

There almost always is a relation between performance of a system and the
performance of applications that run on it :-)

My Windows Vista system runs on an Intel Core2 Duo T9300 CPU at 2.5 GHz. Enough
to get a Windows performance rating of 5.1, which is pretty decent. So, no, it
is not my slow system causing this. I could also observe this very behavior on
Malte's machine.

You haven't mentioned Vista. I know that there is this relation. :-;
But I've not written that your system is slow. Just that there is something that
causes this delay for what reason ever. Even on my Ultra 40 with Vista and a
rating of 4.8, connected via a SunRay and a Solaris rdesktop I can't get a 2
second delay (or because of). So my conclusion is that this is not the default
behavior of OOo.

I have had the problem with my installation running on XP. Sometimes it took 5-6
seconds to show the context menu. This delay did not happen on a misspelled
word. Then I have disabled all the unneeded dictionaries (5-6), the Wiki
extension and now I have no delay when calling the context menu anymore. Maybe
this problem is related to extensions.
