- In Writer, open the attached DOC document having a single comment, with change tracking enabled.
- Delete comment and save the file.
- Reopen the document in Writer.
=> Comment is shown as deleted via a change. (can be accepted/rejected)
So far seems to be okay, but actually isn't, see conclusion...
- Open the document in Word (it shouldn't be).
=> Comment is there.
In Word 2013 the text is not shown, that is a different issue (bug 108772).
This appears to be a functional difference, and possible file format limitation in Word, as comment addition/deletion is not tracked there.
Observed using LO 188.8.131.52 / Windows 7.
A little copy-paste error in second verification step: :)
- Open the document in Word.
=> Comment is there. (it shouldn't be)

Word's Track Changes feature doesn't track comments, either as they're added or as they're deleted. There's nothing in that copy of the document to restore.
Well we should keep this open anyway..
Yes, the correct behavior would be that the comment should be deleted without tracking.

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
