Restore Windows Error

Installed LibreOffice on MAC Lion and it ran perfectly for about a week, then when I loaded a Power point file the computer froze up.  Had to re-boot and Libre will open with the following error window:

Restore Windows

The application "LibreOffice" unexpectedly quit while trying to restore its windows.  Do you want to try to restore its windows again?  and it gives me the option th restore or not restore.

in this condition any of its applications will come up, however it will not allow me to open a file.  Files are not available to choose from.  If I go to Finder and click on a file, Libre opens but no file opens.  The only way to get rid of the error window is to "Force Quit" Libre. 

I've un-installed and re-installed and exactly the same situation happens.

Is there an Deinstaller for the Lbre suite so I'm sure all files are deleted before I re-install?

I happened to run into this problem now, too, with the LibO-Dev_3.6.0beta1_MacOS_x86_install_en-US.dmg currently available at <> on a Mac OS 10.7.4 machine that runs many different LO versions (so already had an existing ~/Library/Saved Application State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState (attached).  The backtrace is as below.  Searching the web for "promptToIgnorePersistentState" shows similar scenarios for other applications, too, but gave no clue whether this is an application problem or an OS one.  Searching for "promptToIgnorePersistentState" or "NSPersistentUIManager" gives no results.

A workaround is to remove the ~/Library/Saved Application State/org.libreoffice.script.savedState directory.

That was the one I had been looking for in vain...
