When inserting an image file with a white background into a text document, an unwanted border line shows either along the bottom, down the right side or both. No action seems to remove or prevent these border lines. The same image file into the same document does not show any borders when action done in MS Word. The image formats can be bmp or jpg but the lines still appear. Resizing the image sometimes removes the lines but usually not both lines at bottom and right and they frequently reappear. The bug was in version 6.4.4 and is still in 7.0.3. following an update. The border lines are probably there in images with coloured backgrounds but cannot be seen as they can be with a white background. The bug occurs with doc, docx or odt formats.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert image file with white background into document
2.Position and resize image
Border line shows along bottom or the right side or both.
Image should show in document without any border lines. There should be white image background against white page without any visible border lines.

The presence of the "ghost" lines can be turned off by unchecking the View -> Text Boundaries checkbox.
The problem is that the appearance of the lines depends on the zoom factor. It should not. If the edge of the image is considered to be a text boundary then it always should be seen, otherwise never. But this indefininte behavior is a bug.
Personally I believe the edge of an image is not a text boundary because if the wrap setting of the image is "Through" then the text can cross those edges. Thus, these lines never should be seen, I think.
However, a better solution would be to add a new item called "Image Boundaries" to the View menu, right between the following items:
- Text Boudaries
- Table Boundaries
It would make sense to toggle this switch independently from the other two.
I upload a sample document and four screenshots. The difference amongst the four images is only the zoom factor. Sometimes one line can be seen, sometimes none, sometimes both.
