Description Andreas 2018-11-03 11:57:49 UTC
On starting LibreOffice the application shows message "It seems that LibreOffice crashed when it 
was last run" at the end of the loading process. But program runs without any further problems.

This behavior is a matter of assigning a macro to the "close application" event.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deactivate the user profile by renaming it, so LibreOffice creates a fresh one.
2. Create a macro module "mAuto".
3. Within that module create a procedure "pExit"
("Sub pExit
End Sub")
4. In menu "Extras - customize - events" assign the macro procedure to event "close application".
5. Close LibreOffice and open it again.

Actual Results:
At the end of the loading processs message occurs: "It seems that LibreOffice crashed when it was last run".

Expected Results:
Not such message, as LibreOffice didn't crashed after last run.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
The bug is restricted to the Close Apllication event. That is, assigning a macro to event "start application" doesn't result in the misbehaviour.

@Xisco Faulí: still, if you had a bibisect results, it could be useful (I'm not entirely sure in the proposed change).
