Subject Re: false "recover files" messages

It worked. My OO.o now is rogue-recovery function free! I'm able to open
Open Office flawlessly --- via splash page or from an individual file.

  I followed Rory's suggestion and found the offending recovery.xcu file
and deleted, though I had to go to the "more search options," because, like
you predicted, a straight search didn't find it.
Thanks to all for you help.
Is this problem due to a bug in Open Office?
Should it be reported as such? Thanks again!
