tar file of original and imported documents

When importing a Word document with endnotes, the endnotes are written to a separate page. This is the default for original productions in odt format, but is inconvenient for imported documents.

In addition, the first index on the imported document is in the wrong place.

The attachment contains the original .doc file and the pdf image of the document when imported into LibreOffice writer. The two files are combined as a tar file

I have reopened this bug because it is still present in LibreOffice 3.6.0.4. (on Windows 7 SP1 32 bit). 
Summary:
Libreoffice shows endnotes on the separate page instead of last page of text. 
The horizontal line which is added by default in MS Word is absent. 
If a MS Word document contains some text between line and first endnote (e.g. header), this text is moved to the first endnote text (see the first attachment "tar file of original and imported documents").

Files in various formats created in MSO 2007 to illustrate the problem

I have decided to add simple files with one endnote without a complex formatting, saved in MSO 2007 SP1 as DOCX, DOC and ODT to show the wrong placement of endnotes. Also PDF sample from MSO is included.

A workaround was posted here:
http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/8608/libreoffice-writer-placing-endnotes-on-new-page/
I'll just refer to this as the "workaround" from now on.

Results of a couple of scenarios:

1. Open .doc with two endnotes
   Endnotes appear on new page at end of document
   perform workaround (insert section shows Section1)
   Endnotes now appear where they did in Word
   Save as .doc and close
   Open .doc just saved
   Endnotes move to new page again
   perform workaround
   (insert section shows Section1 and Section2, only Section2 enabled)
   One endnote moves to where endnotes appear in Word,
   other endnote moves to an earlier page.

2. Open .doc with two endnotes
   Endnotes appear on new page at end of document
   perform workaround (insert section shows Section1)
   Endnotes now appear where they did in Word
   Save as .odt and close
   Open .odt just saved
   Endnotes still appear where they did in Word
   Save as .doc and close
   Open .doc just saved
   Endnotes still appear where they did in Word

This report should cover only "first mark wrongly placed in list" issue and let Bug 58521 cover the page break issue.
