If I type a directory name in the File Save dialog (Libreoffice might complete it or not for me), then press Enter, a warning box opens saying the file already exists and asking whether I wish to overwrite it. This happens regardless of the directory name has "/" suffix, or whether the name is special like "." or "..".
This is unintuitive and unhelpful. Libreoffice should cd to the directory instead. Which is what other Linux applications like Kate do.
Not reproducible for me with LO 6.2 under Ubuntu 18.04 / Gnome.
Are you using KDE ?
