Hello Tom

Thanks for the link - when I have the time during the day I'll look into that.

These were files on my own drive - not networked - and files originally created with LibO.

Hi :)
This might help you post a bug-report

Just out of curiosity, did you get the "General input/output error" when dealing with files on the network shares or on your local machine?
Regards from
Tom :)

    Sorry to keep replying to my own email - I have just installed
    4.0.4 and I cannot reproduce either of the errors - this is
    therefore a 4.1 specific bug.  How would I report it?
