Triaging. Marco: any further comments here? Are you able to save any files at all?

How much RAM do you have, and how big is that image approximately?
If you have saved it before, please rename the .ORA file to .ZIP, extract it, and tell me how big all the files inside the data/ directory are, and the content of stack.xml.

As a workaround, try closing other applications, and try saving to PNG instead of ORA. As a last resort, use the Save method of MyPaint version 0.1, that is, take a screenshot...
