To reproduce this bug:
0. Open Writer with new empty document
1. Insert table
2. Place cursor in most right bottom cell and press Ctrl-Shift-Delete
(newline after table disappears)
3. Save document as doc format
4. Do File->Reopen
Document reopens without table
MSWord2003 still opens this document correctly
Reproduced on WindowsXP LibreOffice 3.4.3 and Fedora 64 bit LibreOffice 3.3.3
PS: from user point of view this resembles Bug 38226
as you write MS Office still opens with the table, it means that the info is still there, thus it is rather an import problem
Reproducible with 3.5.0beta2
the contents of the table is just concatenated together, the table itself is lost on opening the document
Can't test this right now, due bug 60967.
Can't repro, but newline doesn't disappear with Ctrl-Shift-Delete. Sasha, can you retest?

Thanks for additional testing.
As I can understand from comments in bug 60967 ability of removing empty paragraph at the end of document removed because it produces many problem. And will not be enabled in future.
Therefore this bug is no more applicable. And I close it with status Invalid.
