Doesn't LO automatically add .odt to the filename (unless overridden by
the user)? In Windows, at least, that's accomplished by selecting the
file type in the Save As dialogue.

I have noticed a bug in Save As from writer, long standing. I know
the reason for what is happening, but not sure if fixed in the 5

not pass the whole file name to the Save As dialogue.
If this bug could be verified in the 5 series I will file a bug report.
Is this exactly a bug? Do you, in fact, know the reason for it
happening? Your original file name is missing its proper extension of
".odt". The part of the existing name after the dot is - surely quite
properly? - interpreted as its extension. Then when you do a Save
As..., the program offers to correct the inappropriate extension to
the appropriate one. How is that a bug?
If you correct the original mistake by adding the correct extension to
the file name before you open it, the Save As... will surely work with
no problem. Doesn't LibreOffice use extensions (along with actual file
contents) to determine in what format to interpret any document file?
