the mentioned file supplied by the user 'Lem3' in the mentioned thread; renamed by 'Lupp'

For some issues I regularly keep OpenGL rendering not selected for some time now.
Trying to help a user with an issue described by this thread: http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/10136 
I had to switch on OpenGL rendering. This resulted in a mess.

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 5e3e00a007d9b3b6efb6797a8b8e57b51ab1f737
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.29; UI Render: default; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE)
(In addition) UI language: English (Great Britain)

Steps to reproduce the problem (uncertain; I did not try a second time.)
1. Have OpenGL switched off. (V5.1.0.3 on Win 8.1
2. Open the attached file I downloded myself from the link in post #5 of the mentioned thread.
3. (At least I did choosing column N: Check the claims of the poster; negative!)
4. Select OpenGL rendering under 'View' since this was the poster's setting.
5. Close the document and close LibO.
6. Doubleclick the downloaded example file.
Expected: LibO should start, open, and render the contained Document.
LibO starts (partially?). 
The Window title is set to the filename.
The document is not rendered (no view of it at all).
No menu is present. No PickList preview. No lefthand column with controls.
7. Reset the user profile
Expected: Problem solved so far.
Observed: No remedy!
8. Repair the LibO installation. Some extra steps. Restore your user profile specifics.

In my case: Success, fortunately.

Could enable OpenGL one more time and launch LibreOffice? Then you could paste here the contents of the file:

Still waiting for you opengl log file info :)

This is a failure in our OpenGL blacklisting mechanism. You should not have been able to enable OpenGL with your GPU/driver combination.

Resolving Duplicate of bug 96546 -- please post your opengl_device.log details there.
