Screenshot of the dialog with dysfunctional hyperlink and error message

The dialog Edit>Links to external files... shows a hyperlink pointing to the target file of a selected DDE link. Clicking the hyperlink always raises an error message. See attached screenshot.
To reproduce this, simply paste-special a cell range from a stored Calc document into Writer and choose import type "DDE". Then call Edit>Links and the hyperlink.
