Description iaa_1 2012-02-28 09:08:03 UTC
Problem description: 
The list of files, that were already previous opened, at least one time, is empty.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start Libreoffice 3.5.0 over an desktop icon
2. click next to the 'Open' button (dropdown arrow)
3. It is NOT showing any previous opened documents or documents that are opened later

Current behavior:
There is no file to open by selection.

Expected behavior:
There should be a list of documents that I opened already with LibO 3.4. Or at least it should add the file to the list if I'm opening it at least one time with LibreOffice 3.5.

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Windows 7, 64 Bit

During the migration procedure from LibO 3.4.5 to LibO 3.5.0, the profile file 'registrymodifications.xcu' in AppData\Roaming\Libreoffice\3\user is modified. In particular I have noticed that in the description of the previously opened documents some features like '<value>writer8</value' are replaced by '<value xsi:nil="true"/>'. The list of documents should not be empty but the migration process seems to prevent the display of the documents already opened in LibO 3.4.5 and, more annoying, adding any new document in this list.
If you remove in registrymodifications.xcu all the lines dealing with the history of opened documents, the list will start empty but new files will be added to the list once opened and closed.

Platform : Windows 7, 64 bits
