docx document mainly composed of tables
Image of man in attached file is on the left rather than the right
Table display below this picture (probably unrelated to the picture) is also wrong, which then flows on to the pagination being wrong. Numerous other differences occur.

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.

screenshot of first page made from msWord 2007
incorrect layout reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.6.1 on Fedora 64 bit
I have exported as PDF in Word, but it produced incorrect-looking PDF. Then I made screenshot of first page of document.
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproduced
The images look good in current master.
@Andrew: Generally it's better to open a bug report for each problem with a minimalistic Document which shows only the one problem.
That makes it more likely that a developer picks up that bug.
The issue with the attached file is that the section properties(columns) in the original file are not imported correctly.
Open the file in LO and in MS Word 2010, observe that the MS Word renders document with two columns, while LO doesn't. Hence the file opens in MS Word with contents on 2 pages while in LO it is 4 pages.
Vinaya Mandke committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#39056 fdo#75431 Section Properties if section starts with table
