Flash: Can't save file (and solution)

Got a feeling of panic when, after half a day, I tried to save my work in Flash and was met by the following error message:

"The file may be read-only or is already open in another application.
Save using a different name, or close the document and try again."

However saving using a different name resulted in the exact same message.

So how to come around this bug and save hours of work? Well here's the solution:

1) Go to the main scene the file you cannot save.
2) Select all frames over all layers.
3) Right click and select to "Copy Frames".
4) Now, open a new project and select the first frame in it.
5) Right click and select "Paste Frames".
6) Voila, now you can save your new file!
