I encountered the problem to which you are referring on Linux 64bit with
Robert's file. However, I had no such problem on Mac OSX. This was why I
registered the ODB file with LO on Linux before attempting to open it
again. This may have been particular to my setup, or the file in question.

Note that on Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Apple's file manager defaults
freshly downloaded files passed directly to an app as read-only, under
some kind of lame security policy, which forces the user to re-set the
write bit by hand or else move the file elsewhere (which seems to
automatically reset the read/write bits). However, this doesn't seem to
happen on OSX 10.8, and I can't compare with 10.7 because I didn't keep
it on my machine for very long.
