I would first try to reproduce the error without a USB external storage device being a factor. I cannot recommend working directly from a USB device. Ever. The risk of failure (in all contexts) seems to go up considerably when doing so and I myself have suffered from this (although not with LO). Not an answer I know, and you have my full sympathy and respect Alex, just a possible avenue for further testing. I am not discounting an LO problem as your description sounds similar to this bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78260 The example file does open in Writer (displays garbage), but cannot be opened by an archive manager.
