Thanks for your comments. However I did not yet succeed.

I tried the following commands:
> git checkout -b myoldlibreofficebranch

> make distclean

But About box says: Version:
Build ID: c6c286f14468d341f5fd88edc39a37175a1b6caa

However, "git log -1" returns
commit dace560b350346b9f9a102ee602bb129a008bcfe
Author: Caolán McNamara <caolanm at>
Date:   Fri Oct 11 20:45:22 2013 +0100

    CID#736194 out of bounds
    Change-Id: I236c2f51716bfebd0c132bbaed50c1f1ec811ffa

"git branch" returns
* myoldlibreofficebranch

and "git status" returns (my own translation)
# On branch myoldlibreofficebranch
# Files not followed:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be validated)
#       external/tarballs/
#       ios/lo.xcconfig

I do not understand what is happening :(
"git" seems to be OK but "make" seems to build another branch (actually my
branch "master")

No, I did not update my signature for a long time.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
