For now, if you have the GTK2 libraries installed along with TDE, you can use 
the GTK file chooser with OpenOffice (dual pane, folders on left, files on 
right -- quite good).

To use the GTK dialogs with OpenOffice on TDE, in your bashrc:

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

The start OO and choose:

Options->>General, then uncheck

   [ ] Use Dialogs

You will then have usable file dialogs in OO. (the same should work in LO)
