"There is a recurring bug in OpenOffice that has been around for several years, and afflicts various distros though it seems most prevalent in Ubuntu. Maybe because more people use Ubuntu, maybe Ubuntu does something to it, I don't know. I do know there many unresolved bug reports and frustrated users.

"For me, every time I saved a document in Writer it would trigger the Document Recovery dialogue. Sometimes it would crash. Sometimes it would let me click the 'recover the darned documents' button.
