File viewed correctly in Word 2007 viewer
When opening a .docx file with comments in LO that was created in Word 2007 the comments do not display correctly. In LO the comments are the same in each box whereas they display correctly in Word 2007 viewer. I included 2 pictures as an example.

File viewed incorrectly in LO
Please also attach the .docx sample document and information with what software that document has been created!
The file was initially created in LO and saved as a .doc file and sent to a professor. From there it was commented on in Word 2007 and re-saved as .docx. I will attach the .docx that was created from the original .doc. Hope that helps!

Original .docx file
Reproduced with LO 3.3.1 RC2 Ubuntu 10.04 x86.
Every single comment in document is a copy of first one!
I've been able to reproduce this problem with every version of LO from the 3.3 Beta 2 straight through to 3.3.1 RC2. However, the comments are displayed correctly in the Word 2007 viewer as well as Word 2007 itself.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.1 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (build 8 / tag 184.108.40.206)]". All comments show content of first comment.
Works fine with MS DOCX Viewer.
Same problem with OOo 3.4-dev.
Related to OOo?
Bug 113059 - DOCX:, each comment include the text of all comments in the imported document

Or at least related, I also think so.
*** Bug 35571 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fixed by this commit in master branch:
This fix will be available in 3.4.
Hello, this bug has still NOT yet been fixed in LibreOffice 3.4, after having been committed to a fix.
This bug is a dealbreaker for anyone who uses office software professionally.
All developer attention appreciated.

Agree. The (much appreciated) fix as of 3.4.1 is partial. Each comment is displayed individually (as opposed to all comments lumped together, displayed repeatedly in <3.4) but the author for each comment is missing, and the timestamp always shows the time at which the document was loaded.
I actually cannot get ANY comment flags that I insert in a .docx (Word 2007 format) document to properly save and show again upon reopening. If there is a much appreciated fix I am just not seeing it. Using 3.4.1 for Ubuntu.

I believe saving comments in .docx is another issue https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33463 this one only concerns display assuming comments inserted (ie by someone using MSWord 2007 or greater).
Technically I suppose that is correct, although the functionality is closely
related in my mind. In my work, I am expected to both successfully open and
save .docx files with comments.
Thanks for the bug reference - I have added my comment to 34489.

Did anyone check whether that fix REALLY is in the 3.4.1 branch? I will ask for a check on IRC
May be your should cite all comments from the bug in your new ones? It's much more comfortable to have the whole bug history in your comment than to scroll few lines up ;-)
The problem is that it's impossible to handle such "lots of problems with" Bug reports.
I limited the subject of this bug to the fixed "all in 1 box" problem, this looks correct for me with "LibreOffice 3.4.1RC1 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:103)]" and Original .docx file (2011-02-20 09:39) So I believe this bug really is fixed, and I close this bug again.
For other mentioned and still existing bugs I will check whether they are already known and if not, I will file new reports later (currently I'm in a hurry) and leave a comment here concerning the other bugs.
Currently I see
- wrong date, Author missing: "Bug 32779 - FILESAVE docx: author missing,
current date instead of comment's date"
- Comments are lost: "Bug 33463 - Comments are lost after FILESAVE as DOCX"
Anything I forgot?
I believe your comment 14 is concerning
"Bug 33463 - Comments are lost after FILESAVE as DOCX"?
