Reset user profile, bug persisting.

The bug also affects the ruler (which re-appears after being hidden) and window size.

Stuart, steve -_- also has problems with ruler and window size settings not being kept, it doesn't seem to be the same.

Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce it with a self-built LibreOffice Linux build from yesterday.

On a build on macOS 10.12.3 I see the Siebar deck related stanzas being written to registrymodifications.xcu, but then not asserting on reopening LO.

Not reading/processing them on launch is residual to bug 67770 and the original features for it [1].

And hate to kick it back to Bubli and Laurent, as it could be something specific to macOS, but recording/restoring SideBar state has never worked 100% cross platform.

Same time, issues with the Ruler and Windows size settings are not part of recording states of the Sidebar elements, but they also are recorded into registrymodifications.xcu--although I did not check it while poking at macOS. On the Windows builds they are:

Ruler per module "HorizontalRuler" stanza set true|false

While Window size is by written per module, e.g.

and then duplicated to the StartModule if last closed
