Do other .dot files work fine? Is this one special in ay way? very old for instance?

I tried open dot file that I created right now in MS Word 2010. It opens fine in LO

but DOT file from attach gives error anyway
it works fine if the attached file is changed to .doc
So it isn't actually a .dot file, it is a .doc file...
And indeed, if I create a dummy Writer document in LibreOffice, save it as "Word 97-2003 (.doc)", and rename the saved .doc file to .dot, and try to open that in LibreOffice, I get the same error message.
Roman: What is by the way your expected result here from opening that file? That it is opened as a normal document (which is what it *is*, even if the file name has the misleading extension .dot), or that it is used as a template (i.e. when opened, the document gets a name like "Untitled 1" and has no associated file), even if it isn't actually a template document format?

because for users it's a template and this file opens in 6.1 as template
after the recent comments, I don't think this is a highest/critical bug anymore.
Should we just change the error message to be more informative to the end user?
@Miklos, any opinion here ?
I think the current setting is OK; it's a regression if it used to work, but the use-case is "interesting", so not really a priority. :-)
