New database nullpointerexception

LibreOffice Base on Mageia 4.
I try to create a new database , the wizard takes me through the two steps. But whether I choose to register the database or not, I get the nullpointerexception, mentioning it cannot connect to the database (surely the odf file has been created) and the database is always registered - with the correct path - in Tools-Options- Base - databases.
How to get around this?

This might or might not be the solution. When strange things happen the best approach to fix it is to reset your user profil. You can give it a try. For details please refer to:
