I've got an error when opening a document from a nautilus-mounted ftp:
'General input/output error while accessing <path/to/doc>'.
Documents located on my pc open without any problems.
I've also tryed to mount an ftp share using curlftpfs and got the same error.
openSUSE Linux 11.4
Same on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539)
LibreOffice 126.96.36.199.beta1 Build ID: 5271b34bec742e190e2fe5a7dadb7334a705b54
Opening a document in Writer (for example) File - Open - ftp://server/document.odt causes the same error.
Reason: LibreOffice wants to write a temporary file on C: instead of writing to the temp-directory of the user. Writing and deleting directly on C: is not allowed in Win 7 and 8 as normal user, only as admin.
changing status to NEW and platform to ALL according to previous comment.
Confirming also on Linux Ubuntu Raring Ringtail 32bit
Before I get the general input/output error, I also get a "This file is corrupted...do you want LO to repair it, blah blah blah" message.
Should be already fixed in 4.1 with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=f574e1defdb537bdd741edd2523563aa0b03be5a. Opening with gvfs-fuse mounted path is not supported by LO, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=885156#c19. Probably a duplicate of some bug, but I'm not going to search for it now. Bug 58236 might be also a duplicate.
