a word97/2000 doc saved in OO 3.2
Could not open an old word95 file, I got an error message that this was not a word97/2000 file. I was able to open it in OpenOffice 3.2, where I saved it in Word97/2000 format. I was still unable to open this file.
I have attached the file. The contents is in Russian.
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC4 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [OOO330m19 (build 6 / tag 22.214.171.124)]"
I can't open sample document (Word.Document.8) neither from OOo file dialog nor from WIN Explorer.
Additional ugly effect: lockfile remains after unsuccessful attempt with LibO
WORD VIEWER and OOo 1.4.1 open the document without problems.
Cédric, can you help?

I'm not sure, why attachment #2 is shoved in here as well

not sure why that changes is necessary at all, doesn't it mean we've read past the of the stream ? ( and the nId isn't overwritten and it's value remains what it was intialised with ) which happens to be an exit condition. Seems there must before something worse going on here.
hmm after looking abit more it seems that this document appears to be corrupt ( at least my ms2000 & ms2003 won't read it ) So, if that is the case I'd nearly prefer to leave things the way they were and fail hard rather than hide the problem ( looks like there is most likely an export problem here )
Otoh hanging is not good either, maybe I could look to see if we can detect the end of stream earlier and fail out
