Grab of the OSX "Restore/Don't Restore Windows" prompt over a locked-out LibreOffice

Problem description: 

Inability to disable the "Restore Windows" OSX prompt.

Steps to reproduce:
1. LibreOffice wouldn't close while I was logging out/shutting down my MacBook (OSX 10.7.4) so I force quit.
2. Restarted my computer, opened LibreOffice, OSX-based prompt came up, would not respond to clicks on either "Restore Windows" or "Don't Restore Windows."
3. LibreOffice's internal restore windows prompt came up. Have both restored and not restored windows. Either way, OSX prompt refuses to leave, which renders program useless.
4. This error occurs in OpenOffice as well, as I downloaded that as alternative and received the same OSX-based error.

Current behavior:

Locked up based off of Restore/Don't Restore Windows prompt

Expected behavior:

Fully functioning -- and wonderful -- LibreOffice

Hello Mike Anton,

thank you very much for your bug report! I agree with you that this is a
critical issue. It is already known, therefore I mark this report as a
duplicate of the main bug report for this issue -- bug 39007.

In the report for bug 39007 you will find some suggestions how to solve the
problem, at least for some time (see comments no. 2, 6, and 20 there).
Basically, you need to delete the file
from the folder
    "~/Library/Saved Application State/"
(~ is your user/home folder) and to reboot your Mac.

I hope that our developers will fix this issue soon and for good, but it seems
it is not easy to fix, it is some kind of terrible "misunderstanding" between
LibreOffice and MacOS X >= 10.7 (AFAIK >= 10.7 only).
