We are now reviewing bugs for OpenOffice 4.1.1. If you have a ODP file 
that, when exported as PPT from OpenOffice 4.1.0, fails to open in 
Microsoft PowerPoint (or the Viewer, for that matter) this should be 
investigated. The smaller the file, the better. OpenOffice saves in the 
common PPT format that many versions of Microsoft Office (from 1997 
onward) open, so if the PPT file does not open we have a bug somewhere.
