When a crash occurred or LibO ran into a "not responding" state and was forced to close, recovery of unsaved files is offered on the next start.

Where and in what way is the info used by this feature saved?

(I am not talking of the automatic backups.)

It is in registrymodifications.xcu, nodes <item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Recovery/RecoveryList">.

However, I can find there the title, the LibO module concerned, and the explicit URL of the template used for the crashed file, but I cannot find an info about the contents of the file to recover, might it be an URL or a section within a fixed file/location/whatever. There should be a way to generate the stream needed to finish the recovery, shouldn't it?
(My apologies! I don't actually need that. I'm just curious.)

There is a TempURL, which points to files stored in userprofile (LibreOffice/4/user/backup/???).
