Bug Description

Ubuntu Studio 11.04 (natty)
Document Viewer 2.32.0

I spent almost an hour filling out a PDF form from a fuseblk (Windows NTFS) file system. Saving back onto the fuseblk (Windows NTFS) file system seemed to work because no error was reported and Nautilus showed that the saved file was bigger than the blank file. But when I exited "Document Viewer" no error was reported and the size of the saved file reverted to the size of the blank file and all my data was lost.

Work Around:

I coped the PDF to ext4 (Unix) file system. I entered data into a form, saved the file, and exited "Document Viewer." The save worked. Opening the saved file shows the data I entered in the previous session.
