I have OO version 3.0.0 running on Vista Home Premium and when I open an 
existing .ppt make a modification and either Save or Save As... the following 

1) The file grows in size from 79K to 127K (despite the fact one slide is 
2) The newly saved file has lost virtually all of its content. 
What remains is:
A) The presentation format
B) The slide titles

What is gone is:
A) All remaining slide content

What is in its place:
A) The slide content is replaced by a duplicated slide title.

Full description of issue along with screen shots and sample .ppt can be found
