Problem with OpenOffice and Ruby

I’ve been trying to automate OpenOffice from Ruby to carry out a batch format conversion of approximately 100 documents. I’ve researched a fair amount on the web, especially here, here and here, but I’m still having problems.

Specifically all works until I try and save a document using parameters (to tell OpenOffice to use an output filter), at which point the OLE Bridge is giving an error.

If anyone reading this has found and cured a similar problem I’d be interested in your thoughts. Code snip follows:
