Opensuse 12,3
both KDE 4.12 (but also occurred with 4.11)
and Gnome 3.6.2
Libreoffice (also occured with 4.1.3)

This problem does not occur in Kubuntu 13.1, Xubuntu 12.04 , or Windows XP with the same version of Libreoffice. It seems to be specific to Opensuse.

If a file is created in writer or calc, but not saved and thereby given a file name, then at the end of the period set in Tools-Option-Load/Save-General for saving autorecovery information (and optionally the document itself), libreoffice saves, and then keeps on saving every 5-10 seconds, with the result that the ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/user/backup/ directory builds up a series of untitled -n.odt files.

Sometimes, and in particular when both calc and writer are open with untitled files, the saving becomes so frequent that the program is unmanageable and has to be killed.

I have tested this with libreoffice on opensuse 12.3 in both KDE and Gnome (separate machines) and confirmed that it happens consistently with both. However, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Windows XP do not have this problem.

Can anyone else confirm this behaviour?
