I'm new to the list, so if this is an inappropriate subject, please let me

I am using Libreoffice on Manjaro Linux. Over the last several months the
version has been regularly updated. The currently installed version is:
Build ID: Arch Linux build-1". I have been using Manjaro for about
six months. Over this time I have been using Libreoffice to update some
Calc spreadsheets that I created to keep track of my finances. There is
only one of those files that occasionally gets corrupted. It's always the
same file, and only this one file that gets corrupted. I keep the files on
a USB drive. I always save the file, close Libreoffice, and unmount the
drive before removing it from the computer. I have no forewarning that the
file is corrupt until the next time I open it. When I open the file when
its corrupted, I get this window:

​.  Nothing I try can get Libreoffice to open or repair the file. ​
​, if ​
​I open the file with Libreoffice 3 on my Debian system, I am offered a
window that asks me if I want Libreoffice to repair the file. If I click on
'Yes' Libreoffice 3 completes the repair and I see the spreadsheet. The
only strange thing that I notice about the repaired file is that the last
chart I had created is only a placeholder. I then delete the placeholder
and recreate the chart. If I then save an​
​​d close the file, and reopen it in Libreoffice 4, it opens fine until the
next time it gets corrupted. I don't know how to cause the problem, other
that to keep opening the file until it happens.

Has anyone seen this problem? Is there anything I should try?

I have seen a problem that seems to be similar, but that was an earlier
version of LibreOffice, I think 3.7.something. It corrupted a spreadsheet
for me and I couldn't repair it with LibreOffice, so I installed Apache
OpenOffice and opened it. Apache OpenOffice repaired the file for me and I
have been using it ever since, and since then the spreadsheet never got
corrupted again.

That's probably not the solution you are looking for, I just wanted to say
that you are probably not the only one who had this problem, but I'm not
100% sure it's the same bug.
