--- Comment #3 from Longshanks <> ---
I have also managed to replicate this bug. I am using Windows 7, OpenOffice
3.4.1, revision 1372282. 

Steps and observations: 
1. I attempted to open the .doc file in OpenOffice, but encountered the
mentioned error message. When I tried to "Yes" to the query to fix the
document, I got the message "Read Error. Error reading file.". 

2. So, I tried selecting "No" to fixing the document. The message, "The file
"resume.doc" could not be repaired and therefore cannot be opened.". 

3. I clicked "Ok" and was returned to the first error message. 

4. I clicked "No", then "Ok" (creating a seeming loop), three more times, then
after clicking the last "Ok", the document suddenly opened. The name clearly
stated at the top of the document was Resume.doc - Writer. 

I agree that the handling of this error is incorrect for the following reasons:
1. The document, it seems could be opened (despite being told it could not).

2. Selecting "Yes" to fixing the document resulted in being told that it could
not be read, which caused the program to cease opening the document. However,
selecting "No" would cause the error messages to loop back to the main error,
which is strange if there is seemingly no way to open the document (an error is
given whether you press "Yes" or "No").

3. There is the obvious issue that the program will open after clicking "'No'
then 'Ok'" 4 times (I have opened the file this way many times and this appears
to be the magic number).
