-Open 2 or more Calc instances (new file or an existing document).

-Press open/save buttons or File-> Open/Save As. Do so in any of the open
instances. Let's call this, instance 'A'.
-Go to any other of the opened instances and the instance behaves as though it
had freezed.

-Go back to instance 'A' and cancel the open/save dialog.

-Now all the other instances work normally.

confirmed, but it's rather an enhancement.

When using the OOo file dialogs, you can have a file dialog open for one
document but continue editing other documents. Windows native file dialogs
behave the same way.

Native file dialogs on Linux (gnome) and Mac OS/X block othe OOo documents.

REquested behavior is that native file dialogs on Linux / Mac behave the same
way as on Windows (or OOo's own dialogs)
