Some issues may cause an error during saving the document. In that case the user
is presented with a non informative dialog that says that there is a general
error and there is no further help available for the user.

Even worse than a crash where the current document is restored on restard, in
this situation the user has no hint how to save his work.

Possible solutions would be to give the user hints about trying to save as
instead of just save, use another format, using the clipboard etc. A technical
possibility would be to enable the user a special safe mode where the office
saves as much as possible to a different location.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
