My new LOo (Build ID: 350m1(Build:102) auto-upgraded under Ubuntu Natty (via Update Manager) from the earlier 3.4.5 version.

The suite works well overall, but I do miss my old (custom) templates which the new version's template manager does not see.
(I also miss the Recent Documents list, but that's another story).

In the old version the templates were (and still appear to be) stored in ~/.libreoffice/3/user/template, whereas
in the new version I see them in ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/template.

Tools/Options/Paths shows TWO Template paths:
one is /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/../share/template/common (which I cannot find on my machine and have therefore hidden), whereas
the other is  ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/template.

If I want to work on templates via File/Templates/Edit, LOo offers to Open from the selection of templates I have in the new ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/template path. But if I want to Organize, all I get is a message box titled "LibreOffice 3.5" stating 'templates already exists'. When I close that, I see the Template Management dialog with the currently open docs in the Document pane but an empty Templates pane.

This does not feel OK. Any advice on how I might set things straight?
