Sample RTF

This is a follow-up to bug 126173, now the content is visible, but in some cases it's positioned incorrectly.

In addition, in the attached sample the list is wrongly positioned, too.

In and the separate frames are there, without content.
In Writer crashes when opening the file.
In there is content, but not correctly positioned (in a different way than in current master).
In there is only a single frame. is the earliest version that shows the frame.

There's actually a period where the text formatting looks on point, only the inner frame is positioned badly.

In 4.2, the change from the single empty frame to two frames, with good formatting happened in the following range (opening the file crashes in between).

And the change that "ruined" the formatting happened in either of the following two commits (opening the file crashes at the first):

Since this isn't the main issue (which is the frame positioning), it can be split off if needed.

2nd sample RTF

Here's another sample, what's slightly different is that in Writer the text box is pushed horizontally towards the page center, likely because of the mispositioned text.

Dear Aron Budea,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
