Exclamation OOo Writer loses my templates


I have OOo 2.0.1 Writer on both a couple of Ubuntu boxes (5.10) and a WinXP Pro box.

I have my templates path set in all three to the two default locations from the install, and then have added another location, call it /network/dir/.

OOo on the WinXP box shows the templates on the file/new/templates listing. However, the #1 Linux box does not see any templates at all. Every time I open OOo, I have to import the templates to be able to see any of them. And I import them from the local templates directory, not /network/dir/!

Today I have made a change to my default template, but the change only shows up in my local linux directory--it did not get copied (despite the "import") to the /network/dir/. If I copy it to /network.dir/ then it is there. When I do that, the WinXP box picks up the new template as expected; so does the other linux box.

So the question is, why do I have to keep importing on the first linux box to be able to see any of my templates?

What am I doing wrong?
