THanks, yes I know that and it is annoying as all get out for the user. The old
trick of having to wait until the floating toolbar appears and then doing the
'View->Toolbars->[ ] Table (uncheck)' is maddening and it is NOT always
persistent. However testing the trick on 3.4 beta, I am able to uncheck Table,
shut OO down, restart and check the same document and the setting IS still
there. (good job!)

Even with the ability for the setting to stick, it would still benefit 3.4 if
there was a global setting to prevent the user from having to (1) hunt down the
trick to 'wait until a toolbar is open and then 'View->Toolbars->[ ] whatever
(uncheck)' and then (2) do it for every single toolbar that pops up. 

I don't know how difficult it would be to implement, but it would sure save a
lot of frustration by new users to just 'can't get that darn toolbar to quit
popping up' :-)
