For what it's worth, I think it started happening after I upgraded VMWare Fusion from 1.0 to 2.0.1. To be clear, I don't run OpenOffice in a VMWare guest; I run it directly under OS X (10.4.11). But after I upgraded Fusion, Writer started using 99% of a CPU just to page up and page down. It worked but it was s-l-o-w. I ended up downgrading OO from 3.0 to 2.4. My speed is back, but of course I lost the 3.0 features. I'm curious if someone can corroborates this, or especially interested if someone has another solution.
Contrary to the implications in the early replies to the original posting, OpenOffice is scrolling at a different speed than the system settings. Or, put another way, OpenOffice is not using the system's scroll speed settings. All of my applications, except for OpenOffice, scroll at the same fast speed.
Something is wrong in the OpenOffice implementation.
I am having this same problem as well. Put simply: Scrolling does not work properly in Open Office for Mac.
I would also like to point out that this thread alone is nearing 2000 views. That means other people are having this same problem with OO.
Seriously guys, what kind of application doesn't scroll properly?

Number of views isn't the same as number of problems. This thread is a year old.There are only 20 posts to it, a number of which do not have any problem or have resolved their problem.

They just don't want to register yet another forum account.
Also, scrolling is ok in NeoOffice 3.1. I've got two Writers - one from NeoOffice and one from standard OpenOffice side by side. And there's clear difference in scrolling speed.
