Export file as .doc and see graphic problem

Attached file exported as .doc and opened in MSOffice 2010 does not import the graphics correctly. Line directions are messed up and the text orientation and field length problems.

Confirmed with OOo 3.1, LibO 3.3.4, LibO 3.4.5, and LibO 3.5.1. Exactly the same error, so no regression.

same problem (even worse), if I save the file to .DOCX-format (tested with LibO 3.3.4, LibO 3.4.5, and LibO 3.5.1)

I reproduce the bug in LibreOffice,, Build ID: 599b3c91dc5bd9c04e70b38246acac9914a6b219 TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-02-01_23:39:30 on Debian GNU/Linux x86_64. So, I set platform to “All All”.

The bug affects not only a particular document, but most of documents with such drawings. It makes export to doc/docx unusable if schemes are important. That's why I increase priority to “Critical High”

I set version to “Inherited from OOo” due to comment 1.

PDF after round-tripping to .doc in LO5.3beta

It doesn't require MSWord to see that the document is messed up.  LO itself reads it in differently.  .docx is still messed up even worse.
