Yup, works for me.

I thought that problem has been sort of fixed at some stage to
ignore/overwrite those databases when they couldn't be opened
(#i107440), *shrug*, if not, then sure, the above works for me. We got
something similar with dual boot guys with different versions of the
same distro, so maybe best to somehow version that name using the
version of db that OOo is built against :-)

Yeah, this has been something a problem in the past. That works for me.
