as noted earlier: this is a bug related to the kde filepicker. If you 
set Openoffice.org to use its own dialogs (menu Tools, Options, 
Openoffice.org, General and tick the box for "use openoffice.org 
dialogs" you get the expected behaviour with a warning when you try to 
save a file over an existing file.
