Description encief 2009-05-05 11:00:12 UTC
Due to my own stupidity, I corrupted my database in openoffice 3.0.1, and had 
to shut the program. When I restarted, it tried to recover the database but, 
again due to my stupidity, it failed. I therefore restored from an earlier 
database version and re-did my work.

However, whenever I started windows, the recovery window always opened and it 
tried to recover the now non-existent database, which naturally didn't work. I 
tried a repair on Open Office, to no avail

The only way I found to overcome this problem was to completely remove and re-
install open office.

May I suggest a facility on the recovery window to delete unwanted files from 
the list, thus helping stupid people like me.

That's not a Base problem, but a general one. To reproduce
- open /some/foo.odt in OOo
- kill OOo
- delete /some/foo.odt
- start OOo again
=> the recovery wizard opens, asking to recover /some/foo.odt
- allow the wizard to proceed
=> an error message is shown that /some/foo.odt does not exist
- confirm the message
=> the recovery wizard shows "failed" for /some/foo.odt
- close OOo regularly
- start OOo
=> the recovery wizard opens, again, asking to recover /some/foo.odt

You're know in some time warp: The recovery wizard will open again and again and
again, with every office start.

fs->mba: not sure who's nowadays responsible for the auto recovery, please
dispatch this issue as appropriate

The suggested way is *not* to let the recovery wizard proceed. Or is there
something I don't understand?

It is possible to ask the user to remove the file from the recovery list in case
recovery failed. But as not trying to recover a file that couldn't be recovered
in the last attempt looks so obvious to me that I think this should be enough
for the time being.

Reset assigne to the default "".

To remove the recovery process, you should cancel it.

So simply
