Autorecovery only working for administrators

I am testing libreoffice 3.6.3 in our work domain environment and have come across a problem with autorecovery which i can easily reproduce on XP and Win7.

I am working on a document, i see it does an autosave to %USERPROFILE%\local settings\temp"random directory name"“docname.xls”_0.ods (in the case of XP)

if i browse to this directory i can see it has successfully created a copy of my document (confirmed by copying else where and opening)

i then crash libre office and restart scalc. It offers to recover my document for me so i click start recovery.

It then pops up an error telling me that %USERPROFILE%\local settings\temp"random directory name"“docname.xls”_0.ods does not exist. Which it doesn’t as the “random directory” it saved the autosave in earlier has been removed somepoint after i click “start recovery”, and another “random directory” has been created.

I have tried changing the default path for the autosaves to c:\temp and ensured that everyone has “Full Control” of the directory however this has not made a difference.

Has anyone else experinced this or is it just me??
