I don't see this problem on my machine, could you watch the output of "top" while scrolling throw OpenOffice Calc, please?
OO has some problems with claculating which parts need to be redrawn, maybe you speadsheet just hits this problem? OO Writer and Calc use imho exactly the same drawing routines.

So the problem is not confined to KDE and I don't think we should bother the KDE
guys with this bug/inefficiency in the NVidia driver.
Well I also believe its a problem in the nvidia drivers, but can you PROOVE it. I can't thats why I am quite with such bold statements.
