Draw: general input/output error while saving document

LO 5.2.6.2 under Fedora 25

Whenever I try to save a Draw document, I get a general I/O error. After dismissing the alert, the Draw window becomes frozen, it won't close, its menus do not respond. Although clicking on the close button in the window bar does not even trigger the system "window not responding, kill application?" dialog, I can grab the window and move it around. Other LO windows (Writer or Calc) are unaffected and continue to work.

Only to close the window is to disconnect to reopen a session.

Since I performed a recent update, I wondered if something in the format of my existing files was at stake (can't remember LO version when they were created). To clear the point, I created a blank Draw document and tried to save it. I get the "general I/O error" with that blank document too.

Writer and Calc documents can be modified and saved without trouble.

I cleared my user profile to no avail.

Any idea?

EDIT 2017-03-28

It doesn't look like a profile issue because I created a brand new user and tried to save an empty Draw file. I got the message and LO was frozen afterwards. I must kill it manually.
