Sample slide (PPTX)

Slide 21 of attachment #127409 [details] from bug #102261 renders differently in
LibreOffice than PowerPoint due to a missing word break/line break, in
the end resulting in three lines instead of just two.

Once I manually set "Tools - Language - Hyphenation" the respective 
table cell shrinks from 3 lines to 2, as in PowerPoint.

This is really not ideal from a user perspective where one usually simply
wants to open an *existing* presentation and have it appear similar to
how it shows in PowerPoint. 

Is there anything we can/should do by default? Such as enabling 
hyphenation when importing a PPTX?
