When OpenOffice crashes, which doesn't happen very often, or you have a
bad shutdown (e.g. power failure), if OpenOffice had a document opened
in /tmp, you'll see this. The document might be gone but OOo is still
trying to diligently recover the now non-existent document. The solution
is to remove
The path might be slightly different on your machine.
