3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/792412/+attachment/2153573/+files/example.rtf && lowriter -nologo example.rtf
is the cell content placement is preserved.
4) What happens instead is the cell contents are shifted upward into other cells and table cells are deleted.

Regression against LibO 3.3.2
*** Bug 40246 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
[Reproducible] with reporter's sample document and "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC1 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:301)]", for details see attached screenshots!
Sample document looks fine with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.3 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:301 Tag 18.104.22.168)]"
Please also see "Bug 40246 - FILEOPEN RTF: All rows or columns of table shown as one" and "Bug 39337 - RTF document with table not displayed correctly", what might have the same roots (or even be DUPs).
Is your RTF initiative still active?
Please feel free to reassign (or reset Assignee to default) if it’s not your area or if provided information is not sufficient. Please set Status to ASSIGNED if you accept this Bug.
The VERSION picker seems to be wrong (LibO 3.3.2), report (and my results) say that there everything worked normal. So Version - > mine.

Single page testcase instead of the insanely large original one.
In master the table layout is fine (just like in 3.3), but it's still buggy, compared to Word: in Writer the first cell (not counting the header) is "1.\t31.", while in Word it's just "1.\t".
I'll try to see if I can fix that, I would not close this bug before.
It turns the issue I was talking about is a layout one, if you save the doc using Word as .doc, then the same problem is already there, let's forget about it for now.
So this bug should be fixed with
(Please don't request a backport, the new filter won't be backported to -3-4.)
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
Works as expected in LO 3.5.1. Closing. Thank you.
