Hi guys,

	Judging from the amount of private mail our fall-back list:

To: info at documentfoundation.org
Subject: Delete Your Program

	gets on this same topic ;-) [ prolly it is the #1 FAQ we have ],
perhaps one every week or so, typically from our more basic user:

Dear Sirs:
I don't quite know how your program got on to my computer, and I have no
need for your sevices.  However when attempting to remove it from my
system, it states that it is running and must first be closed.
There seems to be no way to close it.  Would you please help in this
Thank you ...
 	I was wondering if (just before the string freeze) we could try to
improve this string / message to make it much more verbose and helpful.
Preferably to include some text about the 'system tray' or the
"Tools->Options->Memory->Enable systray quick-starter" item.

	It would presumably save people a fair bit of time.

	Or - was this message shown in error Andras ? perhaps the issue is gone
with your re-work here ...
