Comment 8 for bug 986205

Alright, I did some more testing: The problem is reproducible if the libreoffice-base package is *not* installed. With libreoffice-base installed, the file opens and displays, without the package it shows the "Read-Error". This is only true for the Ubuntu Precise version, both the TDF as well as the Oneiric version can open the file without libreoffice-base.
