If you use tools->options->general and tick "use libreoffice dialogs" for open/save does it work then ?

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2013-02-15 13:20:01 UTC
Yes, it does.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2013-02-15 14:19:06 UTC
Personally I think gtk_file_chooser_get_current_folder_uri is a bit screwy in the current gtk2, but nevertheless I think we're using the wrong function anyway, so committed http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=914de32b27c7fe164b21f9247275ee3117c0864b
