Possibly related bug reports in Ubuntu Launchpad Bugtracker:

Did you try to reproduce it after having rename your LO directory profile? (see http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile)

Did you install any specific LO extensions?

Could you give a try to a newer LO version? (see https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa)

(Not a bug with BASIC, the programming/macro language, but a basic LibreOffice bug, therefore adjusted Component; set Platform according to comment #0; “normalized” Summary.)

This problem seems to be related to my a bit more than ususal non-standard-system:

I got this error now in firefox too when downloading something(So in connection with the same save/save-as dialog). Same error message in console. Maybe there's something wrong with a specific library.

I don't know if this is something important to libreoffice itself or just to my specific System.

renamed my profile folders. Nothing changed. 

> Did you install any specific LO extensions?

Would you have another machine to confirm this bug?
Can you create a simple text file in your home?
If you can't, did you check the available space for each partition?

Sorry, my previous was a wrong hint.
However, I found this link:
Hope it helps.

Anyway, not a LibreOffice bug obviously.
