FreeBSD dayton.grillet.home 5.4-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE #1: Sun Sep 11 21:09:15 BST 2005     root at dayton.grillet.home:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/DAYTON  i386
As root, I compiled and installed the OpenOffice 2.0.0 port, using the options -DWITHOUT_MOZILLA -dWITH_KDE AND LOCALISED_LANG=en_UK
No obvious errors observed.

When I login as myself, and run openoffice.org-2.0.0, it goes thorugh the normal rigmarole. I select already registered A(I am, I have OO2.0 on a Windows box),
eventually it opens the normal wiondow. I close the window, and get a dialog popup saying "Error saving document File://home/andrew/.openoffice/user/bnasic/script.xlc: General Error. General input/output error".

There is also a button labeled "OK" and no button labelled "Oh, Shit" or "That Sucks" as found with certain other applications in similar circumstances. (Its definitely NOT OK!"

When you press the button, you get a similar message with the file "dialog.xlc"

I tried to report the problem at OpenOffice.org, but I have forgotten my password, and the "mail you a "change password" URL function does not work, so I cant login to report that the "mail you a "change password" URL function does not work"" (recursive error reporting stress is getting me down worse than nested quote stress - and all the diodes in my left leg ...).

It seems to happen every time. I cleaned, cvsup'ed, recompiled, reinstalled, and exactly the same happened.               
 No idea!
