Description Tom Meinen 2014-02-22 20:19:23 UTC
Problem description: When saving a new file to a thumb drive, it takes a very long time.  

Steps to reproduce:
1. .... Insert a thumb drive and allow it to be mounted.  
2. .... Start a new document and type something. 
3. .... Use the save command to attempt to save to the thumb drive.  

Current behavior: It freezes up temporarily when you attempt to browse to the thumb drive.  Every step of the way it freezes a long time and eventually works.  

Expected behavior: You should just be able to easily surf to the folder on the thumb drive you want and to save.  

It's a misnomer to say this was working in  Back then it used to crash the first time you attempted to save.  Then the next time after you reopened LO Writer it would save.  Now at least it doesn't crash, but it takes forever.  I don't know the last version when it was working extremely well.  Maybe around 4.0 -- not I'm not sure.  

I'm saving in the standard odt format.  

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release
Last worked in: release

never had issues with thumb drives under Windows.
does this Linux bug happens with any thumb drive or just with one (maybe damaged)?

I tested this on a different thumb drive and it didn't do it.  Then I rebooted and tried on the original drive where I've had the problems and it did not do it.  Strange.  Maybe that thumb drive is going bad and it's not a bug in LO writer.  I'll let you know if I have further problems, but for now it seems to be doing okay.
