--- Comment #3 from Cem Kaner <> ---
Naveet and I worked through this replication together on system with windows 7
quadcore-64-bit and open office 3.4 (A00340m1 build 9590).

First, we open files from Windows explorer. The files have trivial content (1
word each). We open doc1.odt and doc2.ods by selecting both in Explorer. OOo
opens both but the two open files have the names untitled1 and untitled2. On
the file menu, there is a Save As command but not Save (Save is greyed out).
After adding text to the odt file, both Save and Save As are available, but
both take us to the Save As dialog, asking for a file name. (Calc only shows
the Save As dialog, even after adding a little text.) If you look at the
Explorer window, no new names are added to the list of files (there is no
"untitled 1" in progress shown on the window) until you save one of these files
with a new name.

Next, we try opening the files from the OOo main dialog (the one that shows all
the open office applications). Select File|Open from that dialog and then
select the odt and ods files from the list in the File Open dialog. In this
case, both files are opened with their proper names.

Navneet demonstrated in his work that the same problem arises with 3 files, as
long as they are selected from the Explorer window.

Finally, we replicate the fact that when we select an ods file and an xls file
together, Windows does not open them. Right-clicking to pull up a context menu
does not show a save option. This is true even when we set OOo as the default
application for opening xls files. Similarly, Windows will not open xls and doc
files at the same time and does not show the open option in the context menu
when one of each of these is selected. It appears that Windows will not
simultaneously open two apps that it sees as different. We are not convinced
this is a bug or that it is a bug of OOo. It appears to be a design choice in
