Open attached document. It contains a line, which is vertical because it has been rotated. Save the document as .doc with a new name. Reopen the newly saved document. Notice that the line is now horizontal.
It is OK in Version: 188.8.131.52

It is a "file save" error, because the document saved by 220.127.116.11 shows correct in 18.104.22.168. And the other way round, the document saved by 22.214.171.124 shows the missing rotation in 126.96.36.199 too.
Confirmed on mint 19.2 with Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+

Save to doc doesn't work correctly, but save to docx is also broken.
Let's keep this bug report about the DOC regression, the DOCX bug is a different issue (currently affected by bug 122717, and likely by bug 119121).
Bibisected the regression to the following commit using repo bibisect-linux-64-6.0. Adding Cc: to Szymon Kłos.

Watermark: tdf#91687 correct size in the .doc
This briefly got fixed by Victor Mireyev's commit below, and then regressed again with Justin Luth's fix to a regression introduced by the first commit. Justin, do you have a thought on why this line might behave differently than other lines in other samples?

tdf#118421 ww8export: rotate vertically: not Lines or groups
Shapes and positioning is an area I probably should not have touched. I have no valuable thoughts. My only thought is hallelujah, it isn't a regression report.
