docx file which does not open

Attached is a valid Docx file. I do not know which version of MSO created it.
The file displays nothing in LibreOffice. Thanks.

I modified Status due to facts.

All observations in tests similar to 
"Bug 35983 - No content shown in particular .docx"
but sample for for this one not shown correctly in OOo 3.1.1.

So I can't tell whether it's a simple DUP or also shows additional effects.
Comment 4 Dotan Cohen 2011-05-09 07:01:17 UTC
From the mailing list it appears that this document consists of a single image placed in a textbox. The problem is that LO does not show images in textboxes.

Furthermore, in the same thread it became apparent that this is a common issue: for some reason MSO users often place images in textboxes.
Comment 5 Roman Eisele 2011-12-02 05:51:55 UTC
There is some progress about this bug:

LibO-dev 3.5.0 
Build ID: 549f928-b211287-090bcba-45cf606
Build date: 2011-12-01
running on MacOS X 10.6.8 German

opens the DOCX document and shows a part of the document’s contents -- the textbox just has the wrong size now, it is very narrow. I will attach a screenshot showing the new behaviour. It is possible to double-click on the box and to change its size via entering useful width and height values in the dialog.

So, some progress, but still not correct ...

This is the same like bnc#693388 , so I'll take it.

I wonder whether the fix for bug 34617 has helped.
