As soon as the document opens in Word, File | Save As points to the Libraries\Documents folder on the C: drive instead of pointing to the location it was opened from which is the SharePoint Document Library. This means that the file cannot be saved directly back to the server. Users must instead save it locally and re-upload it to the SharePoint document library.
