	OK - so; can you reproduce having done:

rm -Rf ~/.libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice

	? also - are you running 'soffice' not 'soffice.bin' ? on the
very-first start, we re-start the application [ actually for somewhat
unknown reasons really - I suspect if we did things right, we could
cleanly migrate without that ].

	So - an odd exit code is returned and soffice.bin is re-launched the
second time.

	Quite possibly this interacts really badly with startup notification,
window stacking, and a host of other things ;-) it is not an elegant
design at all; but it's not something new.

	Anyhow - it'd be great to get a 'most annoying' 3.5 bug filed, and all
the data logged in bugzilla so we can track this down.

	Thanks for the report,
