OO.Org failes to print 50 copies of a 300k .ppt file.
By looking at the memory usage and a strace - it looks like OO.Org tries to
allocate over 2gb of memory.

Details, strace output, memory usage output and a testfile can all be found at:

This bug is also present in OO.Org 3 beta.
Though - this bug is NOT in OpenOffice 1.1.5!

If one needs to print a lot of copies of a presentation - the only known
workaround is to use Microsoft PowerPoint - or to print one copy at the time :/
