Example file from Word

Attached document contains an OLE object which was a simple docx file with a bit of lorem ipsum.
In Word the content of the embedding is positioned by default to have the text start at the top left corner of the object (so that the left and top margin is hidden), but in Writer the objects content begins at the top left corner of the page, so that left and top margin is visible, while the bottom and right portion of the text is not.

Steps to reproduce:
1.	Open attached document

Actual results:
The left and top margin of the embedded document is visible, while its text is not entirely.

Expected results:
Only the text of the embedded document is visible like in Word.

LibreOffice details:
Version: 7.2.0.0.alpha0+ (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 77419c6f3aba1fd5b1660795923c22a39bdb1bad
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: en-US (hu_HU); UI: hu-HU
Calc: CL

Also happens in 7.0, 6.0, 5.0, 4.4 but not yet in 4.3
In 4.3 the embedded document opened by double click in a new window and the initial placeholder looked good, since 4.4 the embedded document opens in an embedded dialog, but the initial placeholders content is off by a margin-sized bit.

DOCX import: fix handling of embedded DOCX files

This would make it an implementation error.
