pptx demonstrating word wrap and formatting issues on hyperlinks.

Problem description:
Hyperlinks in ppt/pptx files created in powerpoint 2007 do not word wrap within the bounds of their object box; text is free to flow off the right side of the screen. If word wrap does begin, blue color is lost on the next line (as 3rd link shows). ppt file loses all text formatting leading to uncolored, underlined text that is no longer a hyperlink.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a link long enough to need word wrap in powerpoint2007.
2. Save as pptx or ppt
3. Open in libreoffice and notice the loss of word wrap and underline in pptx and additionally loss of blue color and lack of actually being a hyperlink in ppt.

Current behavior:
pptx opens without correct word wrap interrupting hyperlinks. if an interruption occurs, color is lost. I assume minor differences in wrapping may be font differences but maybe fonts are larger/thicker than in Powerpoint 2007. LibO3.3, OOo3.3 loses wordwrap, underline and color on FreeBSD.
ppt loses all formatting making it not be a hyperlink, underlined, colored, but begins to wordwrap (though not identically to MS powerpoint 2007). LibO3.3 and OOo3.3 loses wordwrap and underline but keeps color and is still a hyperlink on FreeBSD.

Expected behavior:
Text comes through as a normal blue underlined hyperlink with a word wrap that does not go outside the box, preferably with the same breaks as is seen in MS Powerpoint 2007 (as to minimize needing to review and reedit a presentation as it gets passed from program to program prior to each presentation).

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Windows Vista

LOdev 3.5.0beta2 
Ubuntu 10.04.3 x86
Linux 2.6.32-37-generic Russian UI

First two links is normal, third is partially grey (rest after http://), but still is a hyperlink.
Can you check with 3.5?

Thanks for bugreport
About hyperlinks word wrap: Impress not wraps hyperlink. I do not know if it is bug or feature. This makes impossible to open files with big hyperlink without lost of formatting.

With the .pptx, I get wrapping for all the links, but the 3rd one loses color and all the links lose their hyperlinkiness in their last lines. Version:

Perhaps related to bug 39910, see comment 7:
LO never wraps internet-links. Not only Calc, but other modules too.
