I expected that after closing the last open document and exiting the macro, either the desktop would display or OpenOffice would end. Leaving OpenOffice running with no GUI to access it feels a bit tricky.... The user then needs to start a second copy of OO and manually kill the running copy. Admittedly I did not try starting a new copy to see if it took-over for the running copy, but for me, that is the concern.

my setup is profoundly relying on this feature. I do want to keep libreoffice
being loaded for several reasons (loading time and others).
Right now, the makros are doing exactly what I want them to do.

Off hand, it sounds like a bug...

If I close a document from the GUI, it opens the desktop thing.  I
wonder why a macro works differently. This is probably due to
interaction between the macro infrastructure and LO, but I am only
guessing. If you open a bug against it, indicate that here and I will
add some comments to your bug.

By the way, the same thing happens if I use a Basic macro with a call to:


The soffice.{bin,exe} processes keep running in the background when they
shouldn't (even on Windows, I'm not using the quickstarter). I'm
expecting the processes to terminate after .close() (I don't want the
extra memory footprint).

So could this be a bug?
