Interesting to know!
For my part, by precaution, all my data are kept in separate dbf tables,
linked to an odb file.
Why do I use dbf? Standard format making it portable to all softs,
notably GIS softwares. Old archives can also be read even if you changed
There is not much information on long term use of databases, let's say
more than 10 years (e.g.: keeping adresses or bibliographic data).
The file can get corrupt. But worser, some data inside the file can get
corrupt, without changing the structure of the dbf file,and you just
notice it when you query these data.
I heard once that MS-access is not stable enough in long term use. And,
sometimes, odb file can get problems (for ex. shutdown of windows while
some forms are open in the odb file).
But, when the tables are kept in separate files, recovery is easy, using
a backup copy of the odb file.
Using LibreOffice 3.3.2 on windows Vista.
NB: I came to openoffice several years ago mainly because of its good
integration with databases (standalone use).
I wonder if my way of using Base is optimal, trying to find the way
among the many possibilities offered by Base and Calc.
Many thanks to the developers,

You need to restore your database from a backup. It is lost. This
would not have happened with a true database connection.
The database wrapped in a single document (embedded HSQLDB) is just
fine for drafts and demo purposes. If you really want to work with
this bastard you should save a backup copy whenever you take a break.
Close the file, wait a moment and make copy of it before you reopen
