Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure if I understood everything correctly (may
be my English, though).
That's true, that "Automatically select filename extension" is antoher factor
that I should have taken into account. I forgot about it, sorry. My test was
run with that checkbox enabled (which I believe is default anyway).

Yes, they do. KDE file dialog on KDE Plasma, GTK file dialog on GNOME and others
(e.g. Openbox) and pure X11/their own (I'm not sure, I don't know if I have
ever seen pure X11 file dialog) when no KDE/GTK is available.

Yes, it does change. It looks like this:
Automatic... checked? 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199.odt
no 1.2.3 188.8.131.52
yes 1.2.pdf 1.2.3.pdf
(I tried "Export to PDF" function.)
For me, it looks pretty much that both KDE and LO strips extension from
filename. If I disable KDE automatic filename extension it does not strip it,
but I have one component stripped anyway.
Unfortunately, disabling "Automatically select filename extension" checkbox is
working system-wide, at least on 4.8.4. Without this drawback, it would be
nice workaround (but I have to think what is more frustrating - handicapped
filenames in LO or being forced to type file extension each time).
I believe that my questions #1 and #2 are pretty much answered (but any other
comments are welcome). Any comments about my question #3?
