The example file opened in Word and current Writer

The problem is that both the shapes in Word have 1.91 cm top and bottom spacing set for the text box of the shape. This is correctly imported in Writer.

However in a rotated shape top and bottom mean different things in Word and Writer:
In Word top and bottom is the same as in a non-rotated shape.
In Writer top and bottom are rotated with the shape so they actually set left and right margins.
Manually setting these to 0 however does not change the layout (unlike in Word).
