Hi, folks,

The changes you're suggesting would probably help. But what would help 
more is fixing the !#$%* problem! I use Writer heavily, and since 2.0 I 
have never seen this bug. However, I run with a big UPS, and *never* 
have power failures. AOO should behave gracefully for those. There 
should be some way to rig a VM to simulate a power failure for the o/s 
(which is much easier on the hardware than testing with actual power 
failures). Then maybe the devs can find and fix the bug.
