yes, I reproduced it too, the key point was you need to use the Tools | 
Macros | RunMacro, I was using Tools | Macros | Organise Macros | 
Libreoffice Basic. And yes, I did push the fix to master and the 3.4 
branch, did you see the message ( in this thread ) with subject  
"[PUSHED] - cherrypick to 3.4.2 Base fdo#40079 "file / save (as)" 
inoperant" note: 3.4.2 is wrong and is corrected later in the mail spew.

not sure about this, I would like to know why this seems to work outside 
of base :/ I will try and see

then it might be an idea to back out that commit, it appears the 
exception here isn't really handled, I think the exception is caught ( 
and ignored ) previously precisely because nothing really can be done ( 
or at least the calling code lacks the brains to handle the exception ). 
This isn't unusual in libreoffice code, sad but true and especially true 
when saving. imo a document that has lost possibly some basic related 
changes is preferable to an inoperable document and of course the 
particular scenario triggering this should no longer be an issue right ?
