Description Urmas 2012-11-23 05:24:35 UTC
If you're trying to open a Recent file which no longer exists, the following hilarity ensues:

1. The error message "%FILE% does not exist" appears.
2. The error message "%FILE% does not exist" appears once again.
3. The dialog "%FILE% is locked for editing by Unknown User" with 2 options appears. Either of them will bring...
4. "Object not accessible" error message.

Should I say more?

NOT Reproducible with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: dec8fe)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2012-11-13 06:07:28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate /4 User Profile for Master Branch

Steps how to reproduce:
1. From LibO Start Center open an existing document "newtest.odt", do a 
   smaller edit, save and close
2. Rename "newtest.odt" to "_newtest.odt" in WIN File Explorer
3. Menu 'File -> Recent Documents - "newtest.odt"
   As expected, a message 
   "C:\Users\Public\Documents\....\newtest.odt does not exist."

Looks like it's Starter Center-only.
Comment 3 Rob Snelders 2012-12-06 21:43:54 UTC
Confirmed with on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64.

Indeed only in the start center.

On Bodhi Linux

Still reproducible using LibreOffice, not using LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 2f6cbe13e61c44d4bab8192a4708b698d3d9da33
TinderBox: Win-x86@6-debug, Branch:master, Time: 2013-07-25_00:00:21
So, looks fixed to me. When clicking on a non-existing file in the list, only 1 time the dialog appears. After clicking OK, nothing more appears/no circus anymore.

Kind regards,
