Another problem came up that looks serious enough so that I would like 
to cancel this vote, if nobody objects. Juergen, who started the vote, 
is on vacation today, so I need your help to do that.

The problem is described by issue 124599 [1].  Here is a summary:

When you install the RC on Windows then a previously installed version 
(3.* and 4.*) is not removed.  For versions 3.* this leads to a parallel 
installation (because there are different installation paths).  For 
versions 4.* the files of the older version are overwritten but registry 
entries and links on the desktop remain. If you install the RC on a 
system with no prior installation of AOO then there are no problems.

This problem is caused by my patch related changes and is therefore 
restricted to Windows.  Linux and Mac are not affected.

I am currently working on a fix which will probably consist of a small 
change in our Perl program for creating the downloadable installer.  
That means that it requires an SVN commit and therefore a rebuild on all 
platforms.  So,  even if Mac and Linux are not directly affected, they 
still have to be rebuilt so that they report the correct SVN revision.

If you don't object to a cancellation of the vote then the current plan 
is to provide a fix today, rebuild and upload tomorrow and re-start the 
vote on the second RC on sunday or monday depending on how smooth this 
process works.
