and as an exercise in mirth, use LO to round-trip the file and everything will be reversed. Now LO looks like how the original was expected to look, and Office 2003 looks like the broken LO.

> and as an exercise in mirth, ... Office 2003 looks like the broken LO.
Not true with Office 2016 though. 2016 looks fine the whole time.

The big difference in the roundtrip is that initially LO imports the circles as draw shapes, and the round-trip converts them into images. Apparently LO natively handles the area taken up by shapes very differently from images.

Since round-tripping this already looks VERY different in LO, and it also "fixes" the problem, I'll just leave this bug as is. Occasionally there is talk of hiring someone to fix image handling - this is probably a good bug to include in that workload, since it highlights some of the fundamental differences.
