Using Ubuntu 12 and LibreOffice 3.5.

If I try to save a new document using "Save As" with the "Save with Password" box checked, when I have filled in the password in the pop up window and hit enter I get the following error message:

      Error saving the document testpass1.
      General Error.
      General input/output error

There is no problem saving any LibreOffice file if without a password. I can not save any with a password. I do not think this is a permissions problem. I have tried saving files in my /home/Documents folder with edfault permissions and with -rw --- ---.

I want to have a password on some files that even root can not bypass. What should I try next?

Download and install version from and test what would be in the latest version. In couple of days “release candidate” will become offical release.
