You are correct Brian, the bug is different. I hadn't noticed that the extension was missing, Opensuse doesn't need it to know its a Writer file. What is happening is that the extension is not being automatically added, it seems I need to explicitly add the extension in the dialogue. Create a new Writer file, Click Save, type a name like 16.77.test and have automatically add extension. It is not added on file save.
Same when producing a PDF.

Some software Save dialogues interpret anything after a dot in the name field as overriding whatever extension is specified elsewhere (or by default), I think. Perhaps this is a hangover from the days when the only use of a dot in a file name would be as the extension separator - with the name part never including dots. Could this be operating system dependent?
