Public bug reported:

Starting with today's update to LibreOffice 40m0(Build:1), files
not within the user $HOME directory cannot be opened. This has nothing
to do with ownership or permissions - the target document is owned by
the user with full permissions. Moving the file to ~/Desktop allows it
to be opened normally.

Error message in popup window:
  Access to /home2/mico/documents/personal/2018 lists.ods was denied.

Error message when launched from terminal:
$: localc "2018 lists.ods"

This but started in Ubuntu 18.04 (alpha) around Feb. 15, and with
today's update (Feb. 22) it appeared in Ubuntu 17.10.
