That's fine but it still does not solve my problem of the slowdown when 
linking pages back to the first page. Before I enter a bug report, I just 
wanted to see if other people encountered this problem too. So far, no one 
else has, so it might be something wrong with my configuration or hardware. 
But then again, it might not.

The reason I do it this way is because it's simple, easy (it's only a 1 sheet- 
4 page document), and one can spot orphan or widow problems right away.
