Description rms707 2004-01-10 07:13:07 UTC
Windows XP allows a user to make their file access private. The old issue of 
someone opening up another persons file has been fixed. But the recent files 
list (list of files) on the main openoffice screen shows the recent files from 
all users. So user 2 could see what files user 1 had previously opened. 
Sometimes the file name is all that's needed to cause a security problem. 

What needs to happen is when the main openoffice screen comes up and the user 
clicks on file (list of files), only the last files used by that user should 
be shown.
