Having found the time to check, I find that this issue has already been
reported at least twice:

104295 Reported: 2009-08-17 Version 3.1 CONFIRMED
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=104295

120309 Reported: 2012-07-18 Version 3.40 UNCONFIRMED
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=120309
This report also refers to the "perpetual warning" loop when the user
answers "No" to the "Repair file" message.

Note to QA list:
Since the issue still exists in the latest AOO 4.0.1 developer build and
has been conclusively confirmed, I propose to either:

Close issue 104295 and change issue 120309 to the AOO 4 line and mark as
confirmed.
OR
Close both issues and report as a new issue.

Please advise which option is the preferred method.

Dave
