The corrupted database file
When working with a Base database using LO 188.8.131.52, after saving the file and closing Base, the file can not be opened again.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a database document file.
2. Modify a table, create another table, etc.
3. Save the Base file.
4. Open the Base file.
After working with a database document file with LO 184.108.40.206, saving the file corrupts it. When attempting to open the file, I get the Filter Selection dialog. This is true for LO 3.4.6, LO 3.5.6, and AOO 3.4.1.
The file should open

A Copy made of Budget.odb before opening the original with LO 3.6.0.
I can reproduce this on Linux 64bit 220.127.116.11, but it is/was also being discussed on the German user/discuss mailing list, and I don't know now whether they actually filed a bug report, so this might be a duplicate.
@Robert : did you or anyone else from the German list file a bug report in the end for this problem ?
From what I understand, this bug only affects x64 bit version, but for some reason when an existing ODB file is opened in Base, it gets truncated on saving, and thereby becomes unopenable in any version of LO, AOOo or equivalent products.
Please check whether this is or not a duplicate of bug 52639. For example, check with a recent daily or 3.6.1.rc

Thanks Lionel, that's the one, but of course, I forgot to look for resolved bugs in my hunt for the dup.
Setting as duplicate.
