Hi Randal,

I have the latest 4.0+ version of Open Office, and see an unwanted 
popup when initializing the program.  This problem has been 
persistent since 3.0+, and was never corrected.  The popup shows up 
immediately, and gives you two options -- neither of which get rid 
of the popup after selecting them.  I am running the Macbook Lion, 
latest software update.
This bug has been in existence for at least 16 months.

It has been in existence ever since Apple decided to allow apps and
their respective windows to restore themselves on session startup, and
so yes, this is not a new phenomenon. Unfortunately, the LibreOffice
code does not know how to deal with such a situation correctly, and thus
causes the message that you see to appear.

Trawl on the internet and search for LibreOffice, plist, and startup,
and you will find proposed workarounds to your problem.

For example, delete from your

/Users/<myname>/Library/Application Support/

folder, any files in the sub-folder "Crash Reporter", that are called
soffice or libreoffice or openoffice.

Also check whether you have a *.lck file (this is a file hidden by the
system by default) that links to a failed document opening. There is a
setting (Apple command from the console) to toggle hidden files on/off
so that they become visible, or alternatively, use one of the freely
available AppleScripts out there.

And finally, read this bug report :
