"The webpage no longer exists" error when doing "Save As" from Office 2007 documents opened from WSS document library.

We are using mapped drives to WSS3 document libraries.  In one library, after opening an Office document (only happens from Office 2007), if you try to save as, the error "The webpage no longer exists" is displayed where the folder contents would normally exist.

I've noticed that Office 2007 is trying to save to the web address http://intranet/etc, and if I enter the mapped drive letter, the folder contents display.  I'm assuming this is a WebDav display problem, but I can't find the source of the problem.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

The problem with file dialogs accessing the ‘Project Documents’ libraries is due to the fact that this library uses a different feature (or base schema) when compared to normal document libraries, and for this feature the file dialog html file (FileDlg.htm) is missing from the following location on the SharePoint server:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\PWSDocLibs\PWSDocLib\

The fix is easy, take a copy of  FileDlg.htm  from:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\DocumentLibrary\DocLib\
