Incorrect EditableRangeStartValue format when opening document

I’m working on a creating a document with editable ranges to restricted access to content in the document. The document is being constructed in the manner below, however when the document is re-opened in aspose after being saved, an Aspose.Words.FileCorruptedException is thrown with message:
The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded. ---> System.ArgumentException: incorrect EditableRangeStartValue format.

I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing wrong here or how to resolve this message. Any help would be appreciated

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.InsertNode(new Run(doc));


doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "somePassword");

Document doc2 = new Document(@"C:\Temp\test.rtf"); //throws  Aspose.Words.FileCorruptedException
