Some time ago I tested LibreOffice with TDE integration as available in 
LibreOffice-tde PPA on the build-farm.

I tested version 4.0.3-14 on Debian Wheezy i386 and was very unuseable.
On the File/Open nothing happened. On the File/Save as occurred freezing 
LibreOffice. I was forced to upgrade to LibreOffice from wheezy-backports 
(4.1.2-2~bpo70+1 without TDE integration).

Then I tested version 4.0.2-0ubuntu4 on Ubuntu Saucy amd64 and there 
everything worked smoothly.
