OpenOffice error recovery

Delete 3 files (easier cut and paste these into terminal):

$ rm ~/
$ rm ~/
$ rm ~/*

And these are the detail:

Under Windows (English), you could delete the files
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user\registry\data\org\openoffice\Office\Recovery.xcu
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user\registry\cache\org.openoffice.Office.Recovery.dat
along with the entire contents of
C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user\backup\
The path names may be different under a non-English version of Windows, and under Linux, these files will be located in a subdirectory called in your home directory.
EDIT: Deleting Recovery.xcu will reset the autosave interval back to its default value of 15 minutes. This can be changed under Tools | Options | Load/Save | General.
