Only tested on Linux but presumably affects other OSs.
Cannot select any text on the attached file; cursor just defaults to top corner
Presumably some silly non-standard formatting has gone on but text is selectable in Word 2007 running in Wine
No frame is shown on the document in Word 2007 and text can be selected fine.
OO either adds a spurious frame or does not handle the frame in the same way as
Word 2007 (eg. in a way that text can be selected through it)

screenshot of the selected frame
I selected a frame, see the attached screenshot. Then I was able to move it using mounse to another location. The text under the frame was editable.
It is possible that MS Office shows the frames in different order, so the problematic one does not hide the text.
Cedric, this is for you. Or maybe for Lubos?
NOT reproducible anymore with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 (Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80), German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German UI. If I open the sample document I can immediately edit the text, as expected.
Could you please test if the issue is fixed for you, too? Then we could close this bug report ... Or is the issue still reproducible on Linux?
This is a Writer issue, therefore changed the 'Component' field accordingly.
Yup. Fixed here in 3.5.3 on Ubuntu 12.04

Thank you very much for your fast response! One more bug closed makes it easier to find the important (persistent) bugs ...
Just for the record:
We prefer WORKSFORME instead of FIXED in cases like this one, where there is no acutual fix known which solved the problem. (No action necessary! ;-)
