The horizontal line as used by MS Word worked fine in LO earlier versions but in LO 6.4 the lines distance shrinks.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new docx file in MS Word
2. Insert some horizontal lines, save, close
The distance between the lines is much less than it was in Word.
The distance between the lines should be the same like in word or the older LO versions.

distance-between-lines_tdf127368C.docx: edited by word2003 - should be five pages
This new example document shows that LO didn't properly evaluate the document prior to LO 6.2. LO basically ignores the size attribute, since it only applies to the CR marker - which LO doesn't support. I changed to a huge font, and set the spacing to single-spacing (instead of 1.5 from the original example), and set the default font to a very small size to emphasize the problem.
LO also doesn't have a "horizontal line" equivalent, so it has to emulate that with a shape. Since the shape itself only takes up a small amount of space, the lines are compacted together.
The horizontal lines were not visible until LO 6.0.
Another simple example document that illustrates the basic problem is attachment 139078 [details] lastEmptyParagraph.odt: save as .docx looses the 96 pt paragraph size
I will not be treating this as a regression.
From OPs example, the paragraph fallback size should be 11pt.

just noticed this, see also commit 5ba30f588d6e41a13d68b1461345fca7a7ca61ac which added a new item to store this rPr stuff to apply it to list labels; there are some TODOs related to that such as that the empty hint is still inserted because it's required for some test that checks the paragraph height which sounds related to this bug.
