Subject RE: AOOo can't save passwort protected file

Yes, Raphael, I know to do that concerning the AES issue.

My suggestion (in the part of the message that you clipped) is that the same thing be done
with the new AOOo build to see if the crash is dependent on the default use of AES in that
build or if any mode of Save As ... with Password causes the Save to fail.

I have now identified two defects to add to the AOOo bugzilla that are separate from the Save

OOo-dev 3.4 uses AES encryption by default, which no ODF 1.0/1.1 client will recognize, nor
will many ODF 1.2 apps not built to recognize anything more than the default encryption (there
being no requirement that they do otherwise).
You can switch the ODF Version under Tools > Options > Load/Save. Please 
try to switch from ODF 1.2 extended to 1.2 or maybe 1.0/1.1 and test to 
open it with the 2.4 again.
