Thank you for your replies.
I still feel non the wiser - one person requests I don't (because client
problems) and another saying they experience no problems.
However, strangely, after I checked the 'Bookmark' on my desktop, it had
been changed to point to an actual file! (the displayed path and icon
remained the same, though.)
After I removed and re-added the 'Bookmark', the SMB path now opens fine
in Libré Office...
No idea what changed the bookmark's location (or could), but it was
pointing to an '.ods' file, which seems strange - Maybe it was Libré
Office which changed the bookmark? idk
However, thank you both, again, for responding my questions so quickly
and apologies for wasting your time.
I feel this is yet another Linux quirk I'll have to live with.
