Why is LibreOffice so susceptible to config errors. We have about 3 or 4 students a day

coming to us because LibreOffice won't start. Deleting ~/.config/libreoffice always does

the trick but it's an enormous pain.

Is there anything I can do, bear in mind these are students so they will just log out

or turn the machine off with LibreOffice running no matter what I say !

Each machine is used by up to a dozen students each day. Which when you multiply

500 machines by 1300 students, 3 or 4 hangs a day doesn't seem that much but it's

what people remember about LO

What OS, what version of LO? Does each student have their own account, or does each machine have one account that is used (sequentially) by multiple students?

Especially if the latter, that would mean that ~/.config/libreoffice is very unlikely to contain any sensitive information anyway. In which case it could be useful to zip up such a failing ~/.config/libreoffice directory (or at the very least the contained 4/user/registrymodifications.xcu file) and mail it to me. Maybe that would give us an idea why you experience so frequent failure.
