Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-impress
  Installed: 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu5

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

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/344257/+attachment/497929/+files/Review.ppt && loimpress -nologo Review.ppt

on slide 6 click the Notes tab and all the notes are able to be scrolled down to.

4) What happen instead is a text box is created whose boundaries are farther down then one is allowed to scroll down to. Hence, one cannot see all the available note text.

WORKAROUND: Highlight the text and resize to 10 so all text is visible.
WORKAROUND: Make sure extraneous spaces after text are removed before exporting via PowerPoint.

Repro LO 6.5+.
Was marked trivial but it's not, you don't see a content.

There are two workarounds, so severity: major is way out of line. Changing to minor.
