Actually, since a corrupted profile is the largest cause of problems for users of OOo and
cure is a new profile, it would be far safer for a major update like AOO 3.4 to use a 
completely new profile. This approach is recommended by many of the people giving support
OOo. (I've never done that myself, although I have had to replace a corrupted profile.)

Since talking to you is pointless, I'll let you have the last word when you respond to this

post. My points have been made and are clear to any reasonable person.
