Description boicottms 2013-03-17 12:27:06 UTC
Problem description: 
i deleted a document, bute there was a crash. Now at any LO startup it asks to recover a not-exhisting-any-more document
Steps to reproduce:
1. provoke a crash
2. delete the document you were working on
3. reboot libreoffice

Current behavior:
the recovering process starts asking to recover the not-exhisting document - only options are "recover" or "cancel", if ytou hit cancel next time it starts again
Expected behavior:
An option to purge the to-be-recovered document list would be appreciated             
Operating System: All
Version: unspecified

I experienced this as well a while ago and found it very confusing. Obviously the dialogue is not ideal. 

But it's imo NOTABUG.

When the recovery dialogue shows up select "Cancel". Then confirm with "Yes".

If I then shut down LO and re-open I see no further recovery dialogue.

Can you confirm this?

If you experience some other behavior, please re-open this bug and we'll go from there.

Could you try if this works for you like this when using LO http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/.

you're right, I just tested it with and I can cancel the recovery as you said.
I'm sorry I can't test 4.1 - this is my boss' pc.
Anyway It would be nice to make the dialog less ambiguous, like:
"recover" / "do not recover"
Thank you
