Cannot open LibreOffice files from OneDrive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

\\ I face an issue when opening files with LibreOffice from a remote drive, in this particular case OneDrive, that I am mounting with RClone: When opening a docx, pptx of xlsx file file for the first time, the file does not open properly. This happens in my graphical desktop environment: From the file manager: Double click on the "office file" in the mounted remote. For example an .docx, .xlsx or .odt file. Office Libre attempts to open the file but I get a dialogue box "Text import". After clicking yes to import, another error appears and that is the Document cannot be locked error. At that point the process fails completely. I can open the same target file if I copy the file to the desktop or to a network storage device that does not run through RClone.\\
