Description Xander D Harkness 2005-01-03 21:10:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
If I receive an openoffice document via email, open from evolution and
subsequently suffer an openoffice.org crash (which seems to happen
fairly frequently), I have no record of any changes.  If
Openoffice.org were to dump changes to a known temporary file it could
offer to recover when restarted.

The last crash was caused by opening the new fangled gnome file dialog
box to save to a known location, having made appropriate changes.  I
am unable to replicate the crash and this is a too regular occurrence.

I am unable to set openoffice.org to automatically save a file every
minute, for if I want to start with a document as a template, start
making changes and forget to save to a new file, I am too late to
preserve the original document.

I know that this seems really obvious that unsaved changes will not be
present; however openoffice.org is not the most stable application and
even vim, which is incredibly stable (and small) has this ability.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document for editing and make changes until a crash occurs
2. Open document again and all changes are lost.

Actual Results:  All new data written to the application is lost.

Expected Results:  Openoffice.org should be able to recover gracefully
from a crash and recover data it has lost.
