LibreOffice does not support graphical line style with two or three lines parallel like in MS Office. After importing a .ppt file in impress double or triple lined objects are only single lined. If LibreOffice did not support this linestyles, it could import and split them as two or three single lined objects and should look like the original Powerpoint object.

You can see it in the picture in the attachment.

Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.6.0rc on Fedora 64 bit
Comment 10 starmatz71 2012-09-24 18:52:59 UTC
And of course it is still present in 3.6.1.2 and 3.6.2.1, because there is no support for double lines in Impress but it is in Calc!
Comment 11 starmatz71 2012-11-25 11:30:52 UTC
The same is in LibO3.6.3.2 and in 3.6.4.1 also.
Perhaps, this is a goal for the release of LibO 4.0 ?
Comment 12 starmatz71 2012-11-25 11:40:39 UTC
This is also an issue with Libre Office Draw, there are no support for double lines. I think both programs (impress and draw) are using the same code?

This is a major regression if you import Powerpoint Sheets into Libre Office.
Doublelined Borders are degraded to single lined borders which has to change manually with to boxes/lines. If you only import a few graphics, this is no problem, but if this are hundreds of them this is very frustrating and unproductive.

Please implement this feature in future releases of LibO.

Thank you!
