        tdf#91260: allow textboxes extending beyond the page bottom
        This commit fixes layout problems of DOCX import, but also
        now it's possible to move a textbox beyond the page bottom
        using the arrow keys (this worked only for page-anchored
        shapes in Writer).

The original document and its docx version in LO 6.4.4

This looked okay in 6.4.
Both the frame (with "Schon wenige Jahre...") and the textbox ("Ansichtskarte um 1908...") stayed in place.

I don't see anything wrong here (apart from missing font replaced differently between odt / docx).
