When i save a writer document with background color as a ms doc file, the background color is lost when i reopen it.
Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.3.4, 3.5.4, 3.6.beta1 on Fedora 64 bit
We should check if it happens during save to doc or during opening doc file
(I have no Windows computer today for check it)
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
Could not reproduce. Created a 1 page file filled with background color in 3/4 of a page. Both doc and docx files have background color after reopening (but docx is spanned to 2nd page, while doc is filled in 3/4 of a page, just as in odt).

test case of page color

previous document, saved as doc using 3.5.4 on Fedora 64 bit
Confirmed on master e4080dc (1 Oct, 16.50) using sasha's test page.
bfoman, did you use the page background formatting option?
I saw a related cherry-pick patch passing by: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=7cd378518b38def9cda5a0055a1d7525aad1c427
Can someone confirm this patch fixed the issue?
LO 4.0.2 on Fedora 64 bit:
saves background color into doc, but can not load color from there. M$Word2010 opens it with green color, Writer as white
Not saves to docx, Word opens it as white

Can't confirm the fix. But can confirm this is still reproducible w LO 126.96.36.199 on OS X 10.8.3.
Due the fact .doc and .docx export rely on different code, we have to split this bug up. Thanks to Adam, he create Bug 65257 and sends a patch related to the .docx export :-).
Let's convert this bug report to the .doc side.
tested in OS X 10.9.4 with LO 188.8.131.52
save as .doc
reopen saved doc-file
background color is still there
