The protected file is opened without password

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch oowriter
2. Type something in this new file
3. Go to Tools->Options->security
4. Click "Protect"
5. Input the password(more than five characters) and confirm, click "OK"
6. Click "OK" again
7. Save this file, close oowriter and reopen this file
The file is opened without password.
You are prompted to input password.
No, that's not what the "protect" you see in options does. If you want to enforce a password to *open* a document you use the password option in the file->save dialog. Using that makes you enter a password to open the document.
That other protect is to enforce how changes are allowed. You can set the document to be read-only or, the default, you can force that document can only be in track-changes, i.e. you can edit it, but what you edit is recorded as a change from the original. Using edit->changes->record to try and disable that should prompt for the "protect" password
