Description Thomas W 2015-08-31 06:58:51 UTC
When saving a document that was opened from an FTP server, e.g. with

    libreoffice ftp://mylogin@ftp.example.com/somedocument.odt

LibreOffice may prompt for the FTP password.  When this dialog is canceled (e.g. because one recognizes there are still errors and one doesn't want to push the still "bad" document to the server yet), the document is apparently switched to read-only mode.  To make the document editable again, it strangely helps to do a File => Close and cancel that dialog as well.

Expected behavior:

When canceling the password dialog, the document should remain editable.
