If you do the option that you did, then go to Openoffice -> General -> Paths
and edit the save path (the one that is listed as /home/ubuntu/Documents) you can change it to your user path, then deactivate 'Use OpenOffice.org dialogues'.

The problem has nothing to do with where /home is mounted, as I had the same problem with my installation being completely contained on the SSD. If I recall correctly from the last time I did any playing around on Ubuntu from a live CD (as opposed to a direct install), 'ubuntu' is the name of the live CD user. As such, I suspect this is a case of improper migration from the live CD to an installed environment (most likely an oversight; I'm not sure how many places 'ubuntu' gets changed to 'YourUserName').
Regardless; it's at least an easily fixable problem, unlike the problems with StarOffice in the default Xandros (crashes on startup in Full Desktop Mode, only works in Easy Mode). boardboyd's solution:
