After fresh installation of AOO 4.1 RC1 the Quickstarter is active. If I disable the Quickstarter wheter if I do it by the menu entry at the Quickstarter or by disabling the option in Options - OpenOffice - Memory the icon in the systray disappears. But after Logout and Login (Ubuntu/Gnome) the Quickstarter starts. The option in Options - OpenOffice - Memory is always disabled.

I found that the link to start the Quickstarter is located at ~/.config/autostart 2 problems: 1) In the profile where I started AOO after installation at first time (as user, not root!) the link for the Quickstarter is created with root rights! 2) Before I install a new AOO version I uninstall the previous version. But the link for the Quickstarter will not be deleted. AOO 4.1 will be installed in the same directory as AOO 4.0 was. But the link for the Quickstarter have a different name. So there are two links OpenOffice 4.0.0.desktop and OpenOffice 4.1.0.desktop that refers to the same location. Also the actual link "OpenOffice 4.1.0.desktop" is deleted by disabling the Quickstarter, "OpenOffice 4.0.0.desktop" will start up the Quickstarter.

In comment 2 only the 2) problem is valid! Sorry. In nautilus the properties of a link shows the rights for the linked file, not for the link itself.

Both debian and RPM packaging systems have a way to specify tasks to perform when removing a package, but a package is not allowed to remove files in user directories. This isn't a regression, it exists since the feature was created.
