On Windows?  There was an issue with LO migrating existing user data 
onto itself (in which case it would drop most existing content of 
registrymodifications.xcu), but that should be fixed on master for a 
month now, see 
"Move migrateSettingsIfNecessary into create_user_install" and 
"User installation migrated onto itself."
