I work with Fedora since Release F14. As far as so well. But Fedora F27 does really big problems to me. I ask rather before I open a BUG. Also here the facts:

Notebook: IBM/Lenovo T61p
F27 Kernel: Linux 4.15.9-300.fc27.i686+PAE
libreoffice-calc.i686 1:5.4.5.1-1.fc27 @updates
libreoffice-core.i686 1:5.4.5.1-1.fc27 @updates
...

I observe the following behavior every day again.

a) If I copy after data or from an external disk drive and an audio Stream runs in parallel everything stops, inputs with mouse or keyboard are impossible.

b) If I LibreOffice open everything stops, inputs with mouse or keyboard are impossible. Then after approximately 5-10 minutes everything is again in the flow. But if I, e.g., a cell from LibreOffice Calc after Writer copy everything stops, inputs with mouse or keyboard are impossible. Then after approximately 5-10 minutes everything is again in the flow.

This is no beautiful condition!

c) This will be an epic story, 'cause that's not enough at all. On yesterday (Sunday, 30th of June) I tried to run my typical german finance web browser application in the VM. It's VirtualBox and guest is W7, browser is Moz. Firefox. I tried, maybe two hours or so, maybe longer and the result under F27 was such frustrating. I changed the memory for the VM from 512 MB to 1024 MB. The hardware is 4 GB of memory. In the end it wasn't possible to work with the VM under F27. I switched back to the F20 hardware disk an started the same test. VirtualBox, guest is W7 browser is Moz. Firefox. This was working, not to fast but it is/was working.

So I ask me know, what the **ll did the F27 developers changed at all that this release is totally unusable with my - perhaps old, but fine working - IBM/Lenovo T61p. I hadn't never expect that this problems may exist with F27. I'm really disappointed.
