The workaround I'm using is to set the local storage directory to /tmp
(Shutter -> Preferences -> Main Tab -> Directory: tmp and file name is
Default: $name_%NNN)

The default directory was my $HOME which is an NFS share. Never had the
problem with 10.04 Lucid (Same NFS Share, same server setup) Upgraded to
12.04 Precise and the problem appeared. For what it's worth I have two
machines at the house now, and both behave the same way.

Kind regards,
