Sorry if this is not the proper list to ask, but before 
filing a bug I'd like to know if someone has seen this before:

The following .doc file does open correctly in 3.3.0 and 3.2.1 but neither in 
LibreOffice 3.4.2 nor in LibreOffice 3.4.3 OOO340m1 
(Build:301) - tested on Debian and LinuxMint:

Seems like a problem with lookup in many fields (Error: 
Source reference not found), also looks like cell formatting 
is separated onto another page than the form tables.
Curiously in LibreOffice 3.4.3 OOO340m1 the file is always 
opened as read-only, no matter which permissions or 
filesystem is used.

Of course this could simply be a corrupted file, still it 
opens correctly in OOo.

Any ideas ?

Opens fine in OOo 3.2.1 (go-oo/Ubuntu version), OOo 3.3.0, and OOo-Dev 3.4.0
Does *not* open properly in *any* LO versions that I currently have
installed (3.3.3 and 3.4.2).

You've found YALOB (Yet Another LO Bug); of which there seem to more &
more of every day & oddly enough with previous OOo files. I see rapid
regression with *every* new LO update and have actually started using
older OOo & go-oo packages for stability.

Note to others who may think that I do not use or have installed LO:
$ locate versionrc

and I have LO installed for testing on Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10.
