LO 6 macOS 10.13.3 : Startup / Ask to Recover / Say "No" / Crash endless loop

I downloaded the LO6 Mac OS X x86_64 release (sha256: b0e4bbac457a76a62240ae807c96f30fc0e94749a9d8622f47f0669cbf5783ac) to update my LO 5.4.2. When I first launched it, it crashed. Then, on subsequent launches, I was confronted with the recover document dialog asking if I wished to recover the unsaved document. I clicked on "Discard". An "Are you sure?" dialog was then presented, where I clicked on "Yes". LO 6 crashed after I clicked on "Yes". Restarting LO6, I was again greeted with the recover document dialog. And thus found myself stuck in a seemingly infinite loop.

My 2 questions:

  1. How does one break out of such a loop?

  2. Is this a problem endemic to LO6?

Cheers for any help...

LO 6 macOS 10.13.3 : Startup / Ask to Recover / Say "No" / Crash endless loop

I downloaded the LO6 Mac OS X x86_64 release (sha256: b0e4bbac457a76a62240ae807c96f30fc0e94749a9d8622f47f0669cbf5783ac) to update my currently installed LO 5.4.2. When I first launched it, it I chose a LO presentation that I had been editing earlier with LO 5.4.2. Strangely, LO 6 immediately presented a dialog saying "Due to an unexpected error, LibreOffice crashed. All the files you were working on will now be saved. The next time LibreOffice is launched, your files will be recovered automatically.".

Then, on subsequent launches, I was confronted with the recover document dialog asking if I wished to recover the unsaved document. I clicked on "Discard". An "Are you sure?" dialog was then presented, where I clicked on "Yes". LO 6 crashed after I clicked on "Yes". Restarting LO6, I was again greeted with the recover document dialog. And thus found myself stuck in a seemingly infinite loop.
