Some background information, as I was told that I (1) was "quoted" on
another bugzilla (2). Looking at all the German names, it looks like
most of them come from the WollMux people from M√ľnchen's LiMux project
(3). I couldn't find information if they are still using, or if they have migrated to LO, or are planning to do
so with Apache OpenOffice, Google search shows most results for OOo
and WollMux.

Any way it does not seem a good idea to make API users wait until the
next release to have this bug fixed. You can see this bug annoyance by
running the SDK examples

and even using the NB plug-in: in a new AOO Component Project,
bootstrapping to fill the tree with types opens the Start Center too.
