It's doing it even if I don't touch anything; it must be one of the issues
draining battery life on laptops...

The location is writeable, I have no problem saving .fods files in this

I'm not sure if this is related, but I also get many error messages like this

Error: File /home/ftigeot/Projects/LibreOffice/bootstrap/clone/filters/filter/source/config/cache/filtercache.cxx, Line 1706: Fallback scenario for filter or type 'writer8' and locale 'en' failed. Please check your filter configuration.
