It is reasonable to recover #1. However,#2 would probably be stored in a temporary file location, which then would be erased when the PC is rebooted. So I would NOT expect a SessionSave to attempt to recover that file (unless there were pending modifications to it).

In other words, a recovery file should not be created for every unmodified document that is open.

Think for example of someone first re-organizing the document directory after the reboot. In that case LO would end up creating duplicate files for no good reason (since it would try to save the recovered file in the original location).
