With recent master, Save command in Writer uses an 'Open' common dialog, which cannot be used to give a name of a new file.
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today (commit 1cc6db3c6014b36c2452b6e382559119c8093884), I don't reproduce this.
Could you give details about the version? Do you compile from sources?
Do you have the open dialog in every case?
- icon save
- shortcut Ctrl-S
- menu file/Save
The build ID is 2b9394f0c009b385756a0c5d75e3c1cd412f723
This apparently affects all applications and is a Windows-specific bug.
Urmas: thank you for your feedback.
Rainer: would you have some time to reproduce this?

Do you use own builds from git? If not, please contribute complete Version info, especially time stamp.
Are you planning to take this one or do we need a dev. wiht WIN?
Rainer: Sorry, I don't know where to investigate about this so we need a dev here.
I can confirm this bug with Mac OSX 10.8.2 also. Therefore -> versions to 'all'. Set priority to 'high' because this is not a windows-only bug. I don't set priority to 'highest' because this isn't reproducable using Linux (so far tested) and there is a workaround.
LibreOffice Version 126.96.36.199.alpha0+ (Build ID: 9d6bb5daa67fef7abe07cfbfa22cd52ce73d804)
TinderBox: MacOSX-Intel@1-built_no-moz_on_10.6.8, Branch:master, Time: 2013-02-15_23:41:25
I can't confirm this behavior with Linux Mint 14 x64 latest master (build today, using git, ./autogen.sh --enable-debug && make && make dev-install).
Although, when I do 'file > open' my directory is in the last directory I opened a file ... that's correct.
When I try to 'save' using file > save (or shortcut or icon on toolbar) the starting directory is 'Documents' ... and that's the good (default) behavior when I would like to save something... In previous versions this was the start directory when I click on 'save'. So it looks like only the dialog is wrong, not the code that process/shows things.
Can you please help here? What do you think about EasyHack, can yo be mentor?
