I've reported a few bugs with Writer 4.0.2 in the past week. One of these was the inability to 
select or delete a table. I experienced something similar today while trying to add a footnote. The 
menu item was greyed out, and I couldn't do so. 

I also mentioned earlier that Writer seemed unreasonably sluggish while scrolling and such things. 

Checking further, I found that, I was sometimes able to get the menu items to show up by closing 
and restarting Writer. At others, after working for some time (and I'm working on a rather large 
document that uses lots of graphics, extended cross-referencing, ToC, etc.) that didn't work, but 
restarting Ubuntu restored the greyed-out items. 

It's been several years since I was involved in software development (I'm retired), but this sure 
smells to me like there's a memory leak somewhere in version 4.0 that wasn't there previously. 

By the way, if there some way you could let me know that my e-mails have been received? I haven't 
been able to locate a list of reported bugs to see if these already existed and so forth. I don't 
really have a lot of time to devote to serious methodical testing, but I'd like to contribute if 
and where I can.
