Document with table with many columns
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open the attached file in Writer and save as Word DOC file (97/2000/XP)
2. Open the file in Word 2007 or 2010: File is broken in many ways.
This does not apply if the number of columns is reduced by four.
Somehow havoing 35 columns in one table breaks the export.
This problem is not present in old 2.4 releases for windows!
There seems to be more to it than just removing some columns:
Even with some columns removed the background color in some of the cells is lost after opening the file in word 2007.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4Beta3 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [DEV300m103 (Build:3)]".
In LibO the .doc looks ugly, MS WORD Viewer won't even open the document.
Currently it seems that tables are completely broken in WORD export, IMHO that's a blocker.
I also saw Noel active in Table issues, please feel free to reassign if it's not your area.
