Sample DOCX

This is the same case as bug 108691, but in DOCX this time, with surprisingly different results.

Open the attached file. It has some text, and a rectangle covering most of it, but it's set to invisible, thus it's not shown in Word.

=> The supposedly hidden shape is shown in Writer.

In DOC the shape isn't saved in the document in Word, so that case isn't relevant.

Observed using LO & 3.3.0 / Windows 7.
