CCing Andre.

@Andre: this bug might be related to those bugs where the spell checker marks
all words as wrong. It looks like the user had dictionary extensions in his
user profile from previous OOo versions and the Extension Manager didn't know
how to handle it.

The user informed in a private mail that 

- the Extension Manager didn't show any extensions
- when trying to install the Extension
Manager failed and he got a message saying dict-en does not exit 

The user solved the issue by 
- removing the user profile, 
- restarting OpenOffice
- disabling ALL English dictionaries EXCEPT "English spelling and hyphenation
dictionaries and thesaurus" 2010.03.16


How do we handle this kinds of bugs? Resolving them as fixed? The user's
problem was indeed fixed, but the bug was not confirmed nor the root cause of
the bug discovered / solved.
