How to open FCP X without previously loaded libraries (OUTDATED)

OUTDATED: Since FCP 10.1.2, Apple introduced its official method to trash preferences and start anew:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3893 (Section 11)

As you know, there’s no way to have FCP X open without any libraries open. If anything, it will open/create a library called Untitled in your ~/Movies folder.

Anyway, in order to make FCP X forget which libraries were previously open, copy-paste this in your terminal:
defaults delete com.apple.FinalCut FFActiveLibraries

This will remove previously opened libraries from the FCP X’s plist preference file.
