I've never seen the issue either, on Windows XP, 7 or 8.


But I do have a clean XP virtual machine image that I can run some
tests on.  If anyone has a suggestion on how one can force the problem
to occur, let me know.

I assume it is some form of:

1) Install OOo 3.3.0

2) Do a bunch of stuff that triggers profile changes

3) Upgrade to AOO 3.4.1

4) Kaboom!

But what are some things I should do for step #2?
