It is definitely not a prank - I proposed the list, so I should know. 
I'm an AOO committer and PMC member. Very unfortunately, there has been 
a limit to how much I could share my activities for the last few months. 
I will explain more later.

Right now, I think we have a suitable bug for an all-out team push, file 
corruption during shutdown. See 
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=107558

My current hypothesis is that AOO thinks a file save is complete when it 
is still running. The result is that actions that should wait until 
completion, including deleting temporary copies and telling the user it 
is complete, are happening too soon. That is just a hypothesis - maybe 
someone can disprove it?

I have started trying to find relevant code in AOO. 
main/sfx2/source/doc/guisaveas.cxx seems interesting.

To work actively on this, you need to build AOO for at least one 
environment. I suggest following 
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO/Step_by_step

If you want to use a debugger, such as Visual Studio, and are building 
for MS Windows, add

          --enable-symbols \
          --disable-strip-solver \

to your configure parameters. If you are building for a different 
environment, and need help enabling debug information, please let me know.
