This file created by MS Office 2003 with numbered formulas

Problem description: 
I try to open .doc document created by MS Word 2003 (such as attached).
This document contains formulas in tables with captions created by next steps:
By Insert->Reference->Caption we created new label named "(" with numeric value and ")" after it.
This caption inserted after the table with formula
And finally this caption cut-pasted to right cell of the table.
Next formulas created by copy-pasting first formula table.
When I try now to open this document in LibreOffice 3.4.4 or 3.4.3 (Windows or Linux versions) all links and captions converted to (0) .
Rightclick - Fields shows: (sorry for poor translation from Ukrainian)
Field type: Numbering range
Choice (or Selection): (
Format: Arabic (1 2 3)
Name: Unaccessible
Value: (+1
Level: None
Separator: Unaccessible

If I create any document with LibreOffice and save it to .doc there are no problems!
But I can not keep formula numbering in MS Word .doc documents opened by LibreOffice 3.4.3 and 3.4.4.
Possible reason is:
In genuine LO documents (.odt or .doc)
Rightclick -> Fields shows:
...
Value: Text+1
...
Is it a problem with MSWord's "(+1" ???
And how to fix or workaround?

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached document in LibreOffice (possible, OOo)

Current behavior:
Formula numbers (0), (0)

Expected behavior:
Formula numbers (1), (2)

The file compared in MSO LO

No captions (and no zeros that used to be) from DOC in LO 6.4+. 
Note: LO opens numbers right from DOCX if resaved in MSO.

The attached Example.doc contains "SEQ ( \* ARABIC", which appears to violate the MS-DOC spec.  <http://interoperability.blob.core.windows.net/files/MS-DOC/[MS-DOC].pdf> 2.9.90 "flt" references [ECMA-376], and <http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/Office%20Open%20XML%201st%20edition%20Part%204%20(PDF).zip> contains "Office Open XML Part 4 - Markup Language Reference.pdf", which, in 2.16.5.63 "SEQ", specifies the syntax

  SEQ identifier [ field-argument ] [ switches ]

and the requirement that "identifier shall start with a Latin letter and shall consist of no more than 40 Latin letters, Arabic digits, and underscores."  An identifier of "(" does not meet that requirement.

It appears to be a bug in MS Office 2003 that it allows the user to chose "(" as a name there.  It is not clear to me whether and how best to cater for such documents in LO.
