(Removing UX-advise from CC to avoid spamming it.)

MrBean: For 4.2, the limit had already been raised to 25 files. Thus this bug
was fixed already. This bug will not be retroactively fixed in 4.1 or earlier.

25 seems like a pretty sensible limit to me. It's not useful to make
LibreOffice remember every file it has ever opened – LibreOffice is not
supposed to become a full-fledged file manager.

Note that the 8 or 10 files limit was probably not there because hard drives
were small, but because 7 +/- 2 items is somewhat of a magical number in terms
of human memory and perception.

So, while the new limit is probably great in the new Start Center, actually I'd
rather not see 25 items in the Recently-Opened-Documents menu. That's just
imho, though.
