There is indeed a bug (or at least a different behaviour from MS Office and
OOo) with .pps files

If a user double clicks or "opens with" a pps file with MS Powerpoint or LO
Impress it is supposed to autostart the presentation.

However if you open Powerpoint and use File Open to open the pps file it
does so in Edit mode. OOo Impress does the same

LO Impress does not. Opening a pps file immediately enters presentation mode
and pressing Esc to stop, exits LO Impress.

It is arguable to say that this is a bug. But it is not the expected

(this was tested under Windows XP SP3 with OOo 3.3.0 and LO 3.3.1 RC1)
