How to prevent LibreOffice running 'recover' at each start-up?

On Ubuntu, each time I restart my computer, and then start LibreOffice, it asks me whether I want to recover documents. It does this even though I've turned off automatic backups.

Other editors, such as gedit don't have this behavior.

Adding the option '--norestore' when running libreoffice gets rid of the recovery dialog.

This can be made to happen systematically by adding the following to your .bashrc:

alias libreoffice="libreoffice --norestore"
