Title bar from document that gets artefact in bottom-right corner on PDF export

I put together a document using both Write and Draw with vector section separators (see attached file). When the file is exported as PDF from Write or Draw, a blue 45-45-90 triangle (irrespective of the slope angle of the title bar) appears at the bottom left of the bar as if the shape extended to the corner.

The vector was created in Draw as a polygon. I have also modified the nodes on a a square shape to create the same shape, but it suffers from the same problem.

I can't tell if this is the same bug as #37830.

Bug is still available in version

Bug is still available in version but does not appears under all operating systems.
Under MAC OS, iOS and Android is the PDF file clean, without dots in the corners.

Therefore I attached a PNG file.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice ( or later)

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
 If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
