Slide with a text box after saving the presentation as PPTX and file reopened

Problem description:
I had a presentation with some text boxes formatted to fit the slide and configured with the language 'English'. When a saved the presentation as PPTX (MSOffice 2010) format and reopened the file, all text boxes lost their formats (language was a different one and texts were no longer limited to the size of the text boxes).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a presentation file in the ODP format.
2. Add some text boxes and put some big texts inside it, in a way to have the text in multiple lines.
3. Save the presentation.
4. Save the presentation with the PPTX (MSOffice 2010) format.
5. Close LibreOffice and open the PPTX file.
6. Texts will not be limited to the text boxes anymore.

Current behavior:
Text boxes lose their formats when the presentation is saved as PPTX (MSOffice).

Expected behavior:
Text boxes should keep their formats when the presentation is saved as PPTX (MSOffice).

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Windows 7 64-Bits
IE 9

[Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: c0a4c46]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast, pull time 2012-04-29 01:16:37).
Character size and wraps are lost after Filesave, problem is also visible with MS PPT Viewer when I open "sample.pptx" from attached test kit.

Same with LibO 3.4.5 and more or less with LibO 3.3.3; .pptx from 3.3.3 only can be opened with LibO (and shows the problem), but can not be opened with MS PPT Viewer (Error message).

Please compare source "sample.odp" and export result "sample.pptx" in test kit.

Can you check this in the latest master (nightly builds), please?

I recently fixed this one.

I think this is the same issue described here.

Bug 71961 - FILESAVE: text doesn't fit into text boxes after saving as .PPTX

unfortunately no fix seems to have been provided yet since bug is still reproducible in LibO and

I'm marking this as a DUPLICATE (despite being filed earlier) since Bug 71961 has a very simple and reproducible test case.
