Frame Autosize setting thrown away on DOC/DOCX export 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Right click the frame -> Properties 
3. Type Tab -> Notice AutoSize being checked
4. Cancel the dialog
5. Type something into the text frame.. notice the frame growing..
6. Save as DOCX
7. File reload
8. Follow step 2 and 3 -> Autosize unchecked.

If I import the DOCX into Word, there is an option (my translation from Dutch) AutoShape -> Text Box -> Change size Auto Shape to text.. If I enable this.. the shape grows..

If save it in DOC and open it back into Writer Autosize being turned on (expected)

Actual Results:
Doesn't export auto-size

Expected Results:
Shouldn't throw that setting away

Reproducible: Always

Yes, this is known... but difficult, since Writer frame objects are saved as DML shapes to DOCX, and shapes cannot have "Automatic" size, only fixed size in cm or relative in % to page size/margins.
