1. Open a (text, spreadsheet, ...) document in LibreOffice.
2. Open the search bar via Ctrl-F.
3. Close the document.
4. Open another (or the same) document.
Observe that the search bar is still open, even though, one (i.e., I) would assume that the search bar is a session-/document-specific piece of UI. In a newly-created document, the search bar looks especially out of place.

Thanks for reporting. I can reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 15 x64 with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168. I'm quite sure this is already reported before, but I can't find it back anymore. Maybe somewhere mentioned in another report :-). Lets mark this one as NEW then.
The implementation of hiding the find bar can be found here:
What's with find toolbars that are positioned by the user to be persistent as a default toolbar like Standard or Formatting? These users should be surprised by deactivating the find toolbar at every application start.
Stuart, would you agree to close this as WFM? Feels to me like an evergreen to talk about toolbars on or off ;-).
Yes, I think that the Find bar <Ctrl>+F should be handled like all other toolbars. If we implement a control to close all toolbars, or a control to suppress all context sensitive launches of toolbars, the Find bar should be handled the same way--meaning it should be stateful, and if implicitly left open when closing a module it should be in that same state on reopening.
I think the behavior now is correct. Agree => WFM with status quo, with potential for changes to toolbar class objects.
