Well that patch isn't quite enough :-( it seems the migration process 
doesn't cater for the config directory changing so when looking for 
candidates to migrate when creating a new user dir it looks relative to 
the new config directory ( e.g. ~/.config ) and of course finds nothing.

I guess we can easily hack around this by tweaking the config directory 
returned ( see attached ) and this seems ok for a  3.4 release where 
there can only be user configurations in $HOME. However subsequent 
releases >=  4.0  will probably have to start making things more 
complicated by searching the old ( for openoffice configurations ) and 
new & old directories for libreoffice (3) configurations, thoughts
