Well, finally I got some files to analyze the problem. Recalling the
problem: the kids save a Write entry, the teacher moves the files from
the journal to a pendrive, opens them in Ubuntu with OpenOffice,
modifies them, saves them back again in the pendrive and moves them
back to the journal in the kid's XO. But then when they try to open it
in Write they see a blank page. Same thing if she saves from
OpenOffice in pdf and tries to open it in the XO from the journal.
Please find attached a compressed file with four examples.
