3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/207220/+attachment/2134007/+files/Unbenannt%201.doc && lowriter -nologo Unbenannt\ 1.doc

hover ones mouse cursor over the checkbox and it changes from the I to an arrow.

4) What happens instead is it remains an I.

reproduced in LibO 3.6.0 master on Fedora 64 bit
and in LibO 3.5.0 beta on Windows XP 32 bit
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2012-09-15 07:07:18 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I still reproduce this behaviour.

Michael: any idea about this or perhaps some code pointer if it can be an easyhack (for a dev of course! :-))

Repro LO 7.3+.
This is Legacy Check Box Form Field in MSO.
This DOC check box doesn't work in MSO 2016, something is wrong, cannot be checked. Also no arrow in MSO with DOC or DOCX. 
While no arrow in LO, it can be checked. 
I close this bug as NotOutBug. Could be also WontFix.
