Confirmed in LO (f924658e45f256544e43c3fdb2af9b585d0f0933) & / Ubuntu.
Edited text is retained after save&reload in
=> regression

PPTX export: save SmartArt as diagram instead of group of shapes

Hej Miklos, I figured you might be interested in this regression since
you committed the patch (as part of last year's SmartArt work).
