File with test chart

Open Attached xls-document, which has been produced with Excel 2010. It contains a chart with different symbols for the data points. Below the chart is a picture that shows, how the chart looks in Excel.

Open the document in LO3.3. The different symbols are assigned to different symbols in LO, as far as it is possible. Some symbols are not available in LO and therefore get an ersatz.

Now open the document in LO3.4. All symbols are imported as "diamond".

This is a regression.

Reproduced in 3.3.4 (many shapes are lost) and in 3.5.2 (2 shapes: small rectangle and circle) are lost. In both versions lost color. Used Fedora 64 bit

in msExcel 2003 all shapes colored, colors very resembles screenshot, but differs. Shapes are the same as on screenshot, but some of them are in blue squares. 

Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible
