Open Office Probs

I’m running Open Office 1.0.2 on Mandrake 9.1 (at work on one of my student boxes) and having the following error message come up when trying to save a document-

Error saving document. Wrong parameter. The operation was started under an invalid parameter.

After this message OO closes and the document is lost.  OO has run fine on this machine for about 2 years.  I renamed the Open Office directory and reinstalled it but it still does the same thing.  I’ve searched the OO support pages and FAQs but haven’t come up with anything.

I asked the NewChix list at Linux Chix and was politely referred to Google. There’s plenty on Google about this but all the answers say reinstall which I’ve already tried.

I’m going to an ITShare meeting today so hopefully someone will be able to help me there.

I’ll post the results so that anyone else having this prob can hopefully benefit (that is of course if anyone ever reads this 🙂
I’ve got to get this fixed by Friday when the next word processing class is.

If anyone does happen to read this and has fixed this problem could you please post your findings here!!!!
