Consider the attached odt document. In the footer there is a text box saying "Kein Zugang für...". When I save the document as docx, close LibreOffice, and open the docx file, then that text box appears to have (almost) zero height. Hence the text has become invisible.

The test file saved as docx
Incidentally, several text boxes in the footer appear to have incorrect heights to begin with. Curiously, when opening the odt file with MSOffice(!), it looks much better. I suspect that the file was originally created with MSO (is there a way to tell?). So who's to blame for the incorrect textbox heights in LO?
The meta data in "meta.xml" says
is the creator of the document.
The initial view of the document seems to be correct in LO, since the text frame of "Bankverbindung" is 2.88cm in height and the neighbored text frame of "Zufahrt" is only 2.752cm in height causing some text to be missing. (measurements taken from the original odt xml files). So there is something strange in the original data.
The almost disappearing lower textbox in the docx-export seems to be related to
since deactivating the special treatment for docx textboxes in the footer results in a much better rendering of the document.
Why MSO renders both files correctly is an open question for me. Is there a documentation that states the behavior in the case, if the text frame is smaller than the actual text?
Yep, seems to be the same cause as bug 101627
It does not go hiding in 4.3.
Let's leave this open for now.

Does the offending commit also cause the fact that the odt file displays with several incorrect text boxes to begin with (see comment 3)?

Can you specify which box? The position and size of the text boxes is hard-coded in the odt file with absolute values. Strangely, the text does not fit in some of the boxes (e.g. "Zufahrt"). MS Office seems to overwrite this size, I don't know why.
