After installing the latest Mac OS X 10.7 developer preview that Apple released earlier this week, I found a bug in the Mac OS X 10.7 save dialog. After you press the Save button, Mac OS X 10.7 not only appends the file extension like in Mac OS X 10.6, but it also appends a "/" character as shown in the attached screen snapshot in NeoOffice's File :: Recent Documents menu.

Most of NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice.org code will ignore this extra "/" character, but in some cases like creating a new Base database, this extra "/" character will cause a "file not found" error to be displayed.

While this is definitely a Mac OS X 10.7 bug (and it affects OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, and likely other applications), we have added a fix for this Mac OS X 10.7 bug in the following test patch.

Can anyone who is running the latest Mac OS X 10.7 developer preview confirm that this test patch fixes this bug?:

Note: this bug does not occur in NeoOffice 3.1.2 as that version uses deprecated Mac OS X save dialog APIs and those APIs do not have this bug. This bug only occurs in the current Mac OS X save dialog APIs.
