Example pptx file that doesn't render in impress correctly.

When you open a PPTX file in impress it doesn't preserve the text effects.

To reproduce open example.pptx . There is a black text with a shadow and a white outline in the center of the slide. However, impress renders the text white with no effects. It basically renders it useless.
