  [upstream] Cannot save Word document with password

Status in OpenOffice:
Status in openoffice.org package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: openoffice.org

  In OpenOffice Writer, I cannot save a Word document with a password,
  though I am allowed to open the Word document that has an Office
  97/2000 password.  To save with a password Writer is requiring to save
  in a native format.  This prevents passing the file back to Word

  Since a doc file can be opened providing the password I think it
  should be allowed to save it as a doc with a password. This is using
  the Office97/2000 password compatibility for files used on both
  Windows and Ubuntu.

  I am using OpenOffice 2.3.0 in Ubuntu Gutsy but I had the same problem
  using OpenOffice 2.2 with Ubuntu Feisty.
