presentation with text object with unwanted shadow animation

Problem description: when you insert a text object in a slide, give it a background and a shadow, and animate the text inside to appear a paragraph at a time, the text is instead shown immediately and what appears with the animation is the unwanted shadow of the text.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open the attached odp file
2. you'll see a text object in the slide, with white background color and shadow
3. the object is animated, at each click you should show a new paragraph of the object
4. start presentation: the text is (wrongly) immediately visible
5. when you click the text of the first paragraph shows an unwanted shadow of the same kind you gave to the whole object
6. click again and the same annoying text shadow appears for the second paragraph
7. the only way to make it behave correctly is to avoid the shadow altogether, or to create it manually placing a real second grey object behind the main one.

Expected behavior: animation should work normally, showing each paragraph, with the shadow only visible for the object shape. Actually it seems that the relationship between text, the shape of the text object, shadowing and animation is not completely thought out.

Set to NEW, confirmed with 4.0.1, Ubuntu. Wrong text animation, if text frame has a shadow. If you disable the shadow, the animation works correctly.

reproducible with LO 3.6.6.2 (Ubuntu 12.04.2)

As requested, I have tested this problem with LO4.4.1.2.

Unfortunately, nothing has changed: the bug is still there exactly as it was.

As requested, I checked this with the 5.1.2 LO release I have now installed. 
The problem is still there and alas nothing has changed.
BtW this happens on both win7 and win8
Thanks

Hi, as requested I checked this bug with 7.0.3 release. Unfortunately it is still there, exactly as it was before. It is actually absolutely impossible to use a text object with a bordered shadow and animate its text. The full text appears immediately, and following clicks animate the shadows of each line of the text instead that the text itself.
This is absurd, but you can use a workaround creating a shape object to which you give a shadow, and then another object, a text one, with transparent background and the animation you need, putting it above the shape object.
