Do you get this error by creating your documents in the way described in
Comment 2 (Test 3), using the context menu on the file explorer?

If not, and you also get this error by creating the documents using the File -
New menu in OpenOffice, this can be a known bug with the English dictionaries;
copy and paste from Bug 119302

dictionaries are extensions, so go to the menu "Tools" - "Extension Manager..."
This will open a new window with the "Extension Manager". Select an extension
from the list, and you'll see a button "Disable" and another one "Remove".
Removing some extensions may require you have administrative privileges in your
computer, so better try to disable the extensions by pressing the "Disable"
button. Disable all English dictionary extensions, leaving only the one you can
see in the screen shot: it says "English spelling and hyphenation dictionaries
and thesaurus 2010.03.16" You must restart Apache OpenOffice (close also the
Quickstarter icon on the system tray), and spelling should work.
