It's really a dump issue

What do we have

- default was set to false in 2006
- FirstStart wizard asked the user during the setup about the automatic
update -> where the default is enabled, means many Windows users have it
- FirstStart wizard was removed for 3.4 and we have overseen this
default setting
- users who have an older user installation will have it potentially enabled
- users who installed 3.4 or 3.4.1 (if we don't enable it) will have it
disabled, which of course is not what we want

I agree that we should enable this setting and I will mark it as

Not nice that we have to rebuilt the office but useful in the long term
I think.
