Description Aron Budea 2018-11-09 01:48:21 UTC
- In Options / Load/Save / General, set 'Save AutoRecovery information every: X minutes' to 1.
- Restart LO. (just in case)
- Open a saved ODT document, make some changes to it, and leave it there for 1-2 mins without saving.
- Kill soffice.bin. (via task manager in Windows, or by pressing Ctrl-C in the command line it was started from in Linux)
- Restart LO.

=> After restarting LO, recovery dialog isn't shown, unsaved changes are lost.

While keeping the file open, feel free to monitor temp directories (generally /tmp and C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp), you will see directories with names like this appearing: eg. "lu1056059ckf.tmp"

In some versions the ODT will appear in this directory, in others it might appear in <user profile>/backup, no idea why.

Reproduced using LO 6.2 alpha1 / Windows 7.
No problem when using
=> regression
