error message

Running Ubuntu Linux 11.10, LibO 3.4.4.

Receive Error Message:
     General Error.
     General input/output error.

Current behavior:
Some LWP files will open, others will not. Creation dates do not seem to matter, as a file created in 2003 will open, while one created in 2008 will not. Others created in 2008 will open.

Expected behavior:
Should be able to open all LWP files. 
According to this page, LWP files should open:

1) can you upload a test file? Just strip off any confident content before uploading. We need to reproduce the bug.
2) what happens when you try to open the demo file from 
http://www.libreoffice.org/assets/SampleDocuments/wordpro.lwp ?
Comment 2 Nino 2013-02-07 19:04:02 UTC

I've also tried in version 3.6.6 and the same thing happens.
Comment 5 Urmas 2013-05-23 15:50:53 UTC
The attached file opens and ends with text "the office at ". Is that correct?
Comment 6 tommy27 2013-08-29 13:59:40 UTC
tested on LibO under Win7 64bit.
the test file opens normally.

@Jon Barr
do you still experience the bug with recent 4.0.x or 4.1.x LibO releases?

changing status to NEEDINFO wainting for reporter's feedback.
Comment 7 Jon Barr 2013-09-02 21:06:14 UTC
I am now using LibO -- problem no longer exists.
