For the last week or so Libreoffice writer hangs for me when I try change existing file to a different location. I can choose to save the file to a location and it seems to accept it but the interface stop reponding after clicking save. The soffice.bin executable then spikes to 100 %. After killing the process lo_kde5filepick (I'm on KDE) then spikes and has to be killed as well. I mentioned this in a forum post and other usders seem to have it also. See here

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

libreoffice-fresh 6.1.0-2
KDE 5.13.4

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open an existing odt file.
2. Try to save file under a different name or different location.
3. Click save.
4. Try to interact with interface then for example try to close Libreoffice.
This task depends upon
