Yuck: a terribly designed document full of unused tables in tables which runs right to the edge of the paper (or past).
Prior to the regression, import table spills off the screen, appears to be blank, and miraculously the layout matches the number of pages (11) seen in Word 2003.
After the regression, the table runs to the print margin (not to the edge of the page), appears to be blank, and is shortened to 7 pages long.

Reversing the column width (from 99%, 1% to 1%, 99%) mostly "fixes" the document for both before and after the regression.

I don't know why MSWord allows a 100% table to spill over the edge of the page. I'd guess it is a bug on their part related to all those table-in-tables somehow.

Hopefully a simpler document shows up that better exposes any bugs. This document that already hide all of the content is only unusable in a different way now.

The regression patch was for import. This bug report primarily focuses on export, so that means an uncovered existing bug? The huge number of pages is because of the 1% width column, so the content goes on forever now that it isn't hidden off-page.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
