As Petr found out, if you first run LO 3.6.1, then some old LO 3.5.x
(making use of share/prereg/bundled), then LO 3.6.1 again, all on the
same UserInstallation, it can still happen that LO 3.6.1 refuses to
start (as LO 3.5.x copied potentially broken data to
user/extensions/bundled but did not touch
user/extensions/bundled/buildid, so that LO 3.6.1 would not detect that
it needs to remove the potentially poisonous data again).
"fdo#53006: And detect LO downgrading scenarios..." addresses that by
adding yet another pirouette (even though one could argue that such
downgrading scenarios never worked by design, anyway). Between Petr and
me, we have seen it to be effective for both Linux and Windows (master,
at least). Please review and consider for backporting to libreoffice-3-6.
