Created attachment 83971 [details]
Sample Document

Attached sample has been condensed from a normal text document I have used from Beginning of 2014 until few days ago, edited lots of times.

Few days ago with AOO420m1(Build:9800) - Rev. 1623875  on WIN7 64 bit I suddenly failed to open document with error message "Read Error. Error reading file."

So I did several experiments and reduced document to attached sample document. Opens fine with AOO401m3(Build:9712)  -  Rev. 1520285 2013-09-05 13:52:01 (Do, 05 Sep 2013) on WIN7 64 bit. 

LibO Version: Build ID: 0b3b907e96a8bbc477b8755a5bcffc350c53ce2b
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-09-16_05:01:30 also fails to open the document.

I am afraid that it will be impossible to find out how the document became damaged so that it can't be opened with current OO versions.

But if older Versions (I tested AOO401m3(Build:9712) and OOo 3.1.1 on WIN7) also current versions should be able to open that document.

Steps how to reproduce:
1. From AOO Start Center in AOO File dialog browse for sample document and open
   by double click on document.
   Problem: opening fails with error message

My mistake - Sample document still opens fine with AOO411m6(Build:9775)  -  Rev. 1617669 2014-08-13 09:06:54 (Mi, 13 Aug 2014)

Can confirm also for Ubuntu 64. Read error with AOO 4.2.0; AOO 4.1.1 opens the document.
