When LibreOffice decides to not work

I did a distro upgrade of my openSUSE 12.1 (zypper dup) and ran into a fatal error when tryong to launch any LibreOffice app,

The application cannot be started.
[context="shared"] caught unexpected exception!

I had one of those WTF moments until I Googled and found out that you only need to delete the .libreoffice/ hidden directory in your $HOME to resolve it. Now I can get back being a happy typist!
