OOo BASIC problem

Hello everybody, this is my first post here. Great site for linux support, really.

Well as the topic says, I'm having trouble with OOo in Knoppix. I removed the one that came with the CD and apt-get installed it. The suite is working well I could even install my language of choice, but there's an anoying problem. When I try to save a file I get a lot of error message boxes saying:
"Error loading BASIC of document.
General Error.
General input/output error."
When I click ok another messagebox pops in with the same error but different directory instead of Launcher and sometimes different .xlb file
If I keep clicking ok it saves the file ok, I can close it and reopen it with no problems at all.

I even removed OOo and installed the /unstable with the same results.

Some help please!
Thanks a lot.
