By george, I think you're onto something there.  Even if the
commercial ads are already in place, if the text frames for the
classifieds are unlinked-until-needed, then a person can just go
through the paper starting from page 1, fix each page in order, then
link the text frame on the next page and work through the whole paper
like that.

As the performance problem seems to go away when you're at the end of
the document, that trick should make sure that we're always working at
the "end".

That's the best idea for a work-around that I've heard of or thought of yet.

Thanks loads!
