The problematic .doc
I'm not sure how the .doc document was generated. I presume it was created by some scanner software. (Inspecting it in text editor reveals that it is a RTF file and most of the space in file is taken by the blob with the image.)
WinWord displays the .doc as expected: single page with a picture.
LO shows an empty page instead. Trying to type anything has no effect. ^A+^C doesn't help: nothing is pasted into the new document.
Effect is reproducible with reporter's sampl document and "LibreOffice 3.4.0RC2 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:12)]".
MS WORD Viewer shows a picture, OOo3.1.1 and OOo1.1.4 do not.
I can't tell whether the embedded picture is one that we should support.
It's an obscure document with wrong name extension (it's an .rtf pretending to be a .DOC) with unknown image contents - does not sound very important

This is actually how WinWord saves the documents when you ask to save in "WinWord 97/2000" format: extension is .doc, but content looks like RTF.
> with unknown image contents
It's a plain JPEG (ok, for pedants: JFIF). I could extract it from the RTF with trivial perl script. LO Calc had no problems printing it later.
> does not sound very important
I'm more concerned that LO failed to behave in the case normally. One thing LO couldn't display picture - but the other thing LO behaved with the document open rather abnormally: I couldn't even type the text!
But of course, choice of priorities is up to LO.

That sounds interesting. My first suspect was that it might be EPS or similar (although document contents did not look so), but a simple JPEG should not cause any problem. might be something with the embedding.

Yes, that's bad, but the same problem also for OOo, and not a general rtf problem, only with your document, as it seems. BTW, you can type (try Arial 100px and you will see some reaction), but rendering of the document will be totally messed up, it's impossibloe to recognize any character.
So it seems to be a more general "Contents invisible" problem than only "no image".
Something for Cédric? Please assign back to list if not, or if not likely you would have time to work on this in the foreseeable future anyway.
No activity here. May be Miklós can help?

This is fixed in my GSoC repo:
I'll merge that repo to master before 2011-08-15 and you'll have this feature
if you enable experimental features. (Later hopefully it'll be the default, but
there is no decision about that yet.)
Hmm, LO 3.5.1 and LO 3.5.2 rc0+ show 2 pages, the first one is empty and the second shows the picture.
Master (LibreOffice 3.6.0alpha0+ Build ID: 08ba87c-49d3d39-e67b1bf-879ce36-638d9c) shows 2 pages too, but the first shows the picture and the second is empty.
Abiword shows only one page with the picture.
Tested on Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64.
Who is right ? ;-)
Best regards. JBF
I believe you observed a new, different problem (may be related to the reported one.
The report was 1 blank picture without picture shown", what I can confirm with "LibreOffice 3.4.5 German UI [Build ID: OOO340m1 (Build:502)]" parallel Server installation on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) and reporter's sample.
With "LibreOffice 3.4.6 RC1 German UI [Build ID: OOO340m1 (Build:601)]" parallel Server installation on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) I see a Page with an empty placeholder(?) frame instead of the picture
"LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: dc9775d-05ecbee-0851ad3-1586698-727bf66] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) shows a first blank page and as second one with correctly shown picture.
MS word viewer shows 1 page with picture on the right half page, same with AbiWord.
I have no RTF skills, can't tell what the correct way to show the picture is.
LO 4.1.1. on Windows 7 SP1 shows a first page with correctly shown picture and a second blank page.
The second page should not exist.

Looks to me like the good behavior. I can reproduce this tested using Windows 8.1 with MS Word 2010.
Tested using LibreOffice Version: 184.108.40.206.alpha0+
Build ID: 5be7ec4193b892e5643ff5f3f2e6755319569190
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2013-12-27_23:55:02
Same behavior as MS Word 2010, and like Rainer said also in AbiWord.
So all 3 same behavior, looks as expected then.
