what happened to my drawing

HI, everyone,
	I had a drawing I created in OO draw, and wanted to edit it.  I opened
it, made the changes, then saved it.  I was talking to my wife during
this process, and a message window came up saying that some bits might
not be saved in the PNG format.  I clicked OK, and closed the
application after the save.  
	Later I came back to work on it, and the drawing had a size of 0.  It
was gone.  Now, I'm no artist, so it takes me a long time to generate a
drawing I can use for something, on the order of days.  In this case I
lost a week or so's work.  So I thought, maybe OO draw saved a temp
version.  I thought I can just open OO draw and maybe recapture the
whole thing.  However I cannot find Open Office draw either.  I have
Calendar, Dia diagram editor, Invest Chart, J-Pilot, Presentation,
Project Management, Spreadsheet, Tasks, and Word Processing under the
Office menue of Applications.  I already tried removing and
re-installing Open Office Draw using the Applications-add/remove
software tool, but no joy.

	I am sure I have a copy on my backup, so I can recover the drawing, but
what gives with Open Office Draw?  Am I the only one with this problem?
Where would I invoke OO draw directly?
