Well, one strange thing I have seen is, that sometimes when I open one
of those files (in LibreOffice) the save button is active, as if I had
changed it even though I did not.

But in this case I think I did not even open it.

Anyway, my question still remains: What can I do when these conflicts
occur? Somehow I need to tell Ubuntu one which file is the right one
to save, right? So how do I do that? As you don't use Ubuntu One I
guess this question is asked to someone else… :D
