a 12-month calendar

I'm attaching a .doc file that is a calendar.  With LibreOffice I see
January on the first page, but none of the other month names on their
pages.  The author of the calendar asserts that with Microsoft Word all
the month names are there, and that Open/Libre Office have this bug that
does not display them.

Reproducible in LO6.0dev.

In MS Office, you can see that the left column with the Month and Year have a black background, and the text is white.  The text is still white, but the background is also white, so the text cannot be seen.

repro 7.2+
I round-tripped the file with Word 2003, but that didn't help.
A DOCX version imports fine.

I tried to create my own reproducer from scratch but failed. This is an autoshape with text added to it.
