This is not the right attitude, we have a bug that is very hard to 
reproduce so all the information we can get is important.


The hashes problem happens per file, right? We even had a user who 
reported in this thread that all files were displaying hashes, but I 
think that the occurrences reported so far are all about a single lost 
file (I had a look at the one from today and that is the impression I got).

I did a test following Rory's ideas: I have a virtual machine where I 
can run OpenOffice. I opened a document that takes long to load/save, 
modified it slighty, gave the "Save" command and, when that was still in 
progress, I "destroyed" (equivalent of a forced poweroff, i.e., pulling 
power cord) the machine. Upon reboot, I restarted OpenOffice, I was 
presented with a recovery screen, recovery was successful, my changes 
had been lost but the original document was recovered. So I wasn't able 
to reproduce the problem even with this simulation.
