Since loading OpenOffice suite, all thumbnail icons used to denote Word, Excel
and PowerPoint documents have been replaced with the OpenOffice icons.  This
raises two issues for me:

1.  why am I not asked if I want this to happen?  I now have difficulty spotting
the type of document I am looking for.

2.  how do I now differentiate which documents I have opened in, for example,
Writer and converted to open documents from those that are still in Word format?
 I would have thought it far more sensible to only replace the MS icons as and
when I had saved them as open documents.
