cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/314147/+attachment/434865/+files/CAR08.wb3 && localc -nologo CAR08.wb3

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
Added Apache OO issue to See Also list (https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=64403 would seem a related duplicate). Version set to Inherited From OOo.
Setting version back from "Inherited From OOo" to what it was prior (for bugs marked enhancement), for QA tracking purposes. My mistake. Apologies.
I don't see that this was ever confirmed. REOPENED is incorrect status. Moving back to UNCONFIRMED.
This was initially reported downstream 5 years ago, as noted in the See Also: at the top of this report -> https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/314147 , and as I've confirmed this now twice, once downstream, and now again here by reporting it, I've marked this New as outlined in https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BSA/BugReport_Details#Initial_state (which doesn't require a member of QA confirming a bug to mark it New).
Despite this, as I'm now formally a member of QA https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Team , I've gone ahead and placed myself as the QA contact if you would have further questions regarding the scope of this report.
just for information, I just added some code in libwps to convert *.wb3 files ; so LibreOffice will contain in a near future a filter to convert them (probably in LibreOffice 6.1), ie. first, a new version libwps must be released, then this version must be integrated to LibreOffice, ...
LibreOffice 6.2 (and probably LibreOffice 6.1) can now open this file...
