This is by purpose. People would complain about loosing the user setting
otherwise. Of course, it might bring some problems but let's see. Note
that the same situation was when you updated and downgraded between
LO-3.3.x and LO-3.4.0-betaX. Both versions used the same user
configuration. Just the turnaround was not that easy.
