Maybe it is just a quirk of the network file systems then. I'm usually
trying to get to a Samba share - which is sad since I'm using Samba for
Linux to Linux communication, but then I also use .xls files for OOo to
Lotus file transfer with my accountant. There's a certain perverse
satisfaction in using Microsoft 'standards' that they pretty much use to
lock you into their products purely as a means to get non Microsoft
products to communicate though ;)
