Sample pptx with overlapping text

I am using libreoffice 5.3.2 version on linux 14.04 (32bit system). When I try to load any pptx file sometimes the text is overlapping. And if I keep the file open for few seconds then the overlapping of text issue is resolved. I have OpenGL disabled. Kindly help me in understanding the cause of this issue and how to fix this.

As the presentation is confidential attaching one slide with random text so that issue can be identified. All required fonts are installed on my system. I am using libreoffice for pptx to pdf conversion.

Please find attached sample pptx and screen-shot of how it looks in my system.

it became to be overlapped after 798a563db133ebed3876c245459d90ef54ee7c9a. Hoewever, it wasn't correct before neither.

Once you will click on the text in this slide the text overlapping issue will go.

Kindly help me to understand how should I fix this as I am using LibreOffice programatically using api's

Repro in 6.2+ for attachment 133148 [details]. 
Looks like LO doesn't recognize "Shrink text on overflow" option used in text box.
Other options preview fine: "Do not autofit" and "Resize shape to fit text". 

Mike's issue was different and it's resolved now, tested 5.4.7. Removing posts.

I don't know why I didn't mark other as a duplicate of this one, but now they have duplicate, so easier to mark this one.
