[LibreOffice 3.4.0 DEV300m103 Build 1 / on WinXP]

- Open Writer via swriter.exe
- Type some text
- Save as "Test1" <Ctrl+S>

Error message:
Error saving the document Untitled1
General error.
General input/output error.

The same error message with
Calc, Impress, Draw.

Have to kill soffice.bin for turning off the application.

This is a blocker without a doubt.  Related to Bug 36271?  Same error message for both bugs.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-04-17 22:11:09 UTC
Might have same roots like
Bug 36271 - FILEOPEN impossible, General error

Can you help?
Please feel free to reassign if it's not your area!

I assume you tried to save in the default ODF formats (.ods, .odp, .odt)? In that case this problem has the same root cause as bug #36263, which has been fixed. Resolving as duplicate.

"I assume you tried to save in the default ODF formats (.ods, .odp, .odt)?"

Yes. Sorry for the poor description.
And thanks, I'll test the fix with the next available build...
