Description Harald Koester 2018-08-10 19:40:50 UTC
In order to reproduce:

[1] I used a new user profile. Therefor rename or delete existing user profile.
[2] Start LibreOffice and enable option “Edit document properties before saving”: Extras > Options... > Load/Save > General. Click option and then “OK”.
[3] Open new text document and insert a bit of text.
[4] Close and save document:
(a) Menu: File > Close. Dialogue “Save Document?” is displayed
(b) Click “Save” and insert file name. Then “Save”. The Document Properties dialogue is displayed for a moment. Then the Start Centre is displayed, but it is freezed. An operation is no longer possible. You have to cancel LibreOffice with the Task Manager. Expected: No freeze.
[5] Start LibreOffice again. A recovery process is not performed.

Works for me with version 6.0.6. Hence regression.

I guess, the root cause for this bug, is that the document is already closed.
