Unhappy OpenOffice exporting really huge PDF filesizes?

Has anyone else noticed how humongous the file sizes are when you export an OO .swx file to a PDF? It's ridiculous! Even when I set it on "minimum size possible" it is still huge. Is this a bug or a feature? Is there any better/easier way I can export my *.sxw documents to PDF and get reasonable file sizes? Would printing to a post script file and then running ps2pdf be a better solution? (and if so, why doesn't just do that?)
