Swedish and Finnish news are reporting that an AF A380 was in trouble above Åland. Reportedly, the aircraft had problems with its doors. It had to dump fuel, perhaps as much as 90 000 liters, and descend to 5000 meters. The aircraft returned to Paris.

I have been unable to find a news article in English, but here are a couple of stories in Finnish and Swedish:
