Created attachment 134908 [details]
A DOCX with 1-cell auto-width table
The attached document has one table that has no explicit width information in it. It opens as a narrow table (just enough to fit the small text in it) in Word, but table size is too wide in Writer, exceeding page width.
According to ECMA-376-1:2016 17.4.63, 17.18.87, etc, all table widths are considered preferred, and actual table layout should be determined using an algorithm described in 17.18.87. When w:tblLayout element is omitted, or there is no explicit width information given, it is assumed that AutoFit Table Layout should be used, i.e. using cells content to determine final widths of table grid. In the description of the AutoFit Table Layout algorithm, it is stated that the table width grows to hold data, but no more than page width.

is it related to bug 109297 ?
(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #2)
No, these two are unrelated. I'll see what can be done about that one (while I'm at it).
Mike Kaganski committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#109524: use 100% table width when there's no explicit width available
It will be available in 6.0.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
It is not fixed yet. A proper fix would be to consider cell content according to standard algorithm.
Dear Mike Kaganski,
This bug has been in ASSIGNED status for more than 3 months without any
