Description philstevens 2004-04-19 22:21:26 UTC
Saving a file with the "Save as" dialog and setting the path to a directory
where the user does not have write permissions gives an error with the text:
"Unable to  save /home/niceuser/thisdir/foo.sxw. File or path does not exist."

The error message should indicate the actual problem, which in this case was
that niceuser did not have write permission on the directory thisdir.

Change to framework as this is same with others. 

We need to change File or path does not exist with Write protected 
disk/Folders. or other more informative error

TM->HRO: Reproducible. Please have a look and decide if there should be made
some changes in the error-message.

Error handling seems to be damaged here.

Reproduced on Ooo1.0(Linux 2.4.26). Tried removing other combinations of
permissions and they all returned valid error messages. Only the missing
write(r-x) returned an incorrect error message.
