error msg and wrong dialog

Problem description: 
every time I click a point to create a new document from a template it shows the errormsg at point 2. It does not matter from which application.

Steps to reproduce:
1. file - new - template
2. error = Fehler beim Anlegen eines neuen Dokumentes: templates existiert bereits.
3. click OK
4. error = see attached file Datei-neu2.png
   - the same errormsg as in point 2
   - only the file-dialog, no templates

with english and german installation the same .. (Error creating a new document: templates already exists.)

Current behavior:
tempates path is ignored ..

Expected behavior:
templates path should be used

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Ubuntu 11.10
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.1

I also experienced this bug on Windows.

The solution is to delete C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice and let LibreOffice recreate the path and files

For Linux, maybe you have to remove dot folder (eg. .libreoffice) in your home, that contains the setting and customization
