Thanks for reporting!

I can reproduce this using (Build ID: c5132e30fb09477aa46d810dd86727b3aa8cf20)
TinderBox: MacOSX-Intel@1-built_no-moz_on_10.6.8, Branch:master, Time: 2012-12-30_01:12:12

and LibreOffice (Build ID: 2ef5aff)

Tested with Mac OSX 10.8.2, so not Windows only -> platform set to 'all'.

In Word for Mac the file is only 4 pages long; in LibreOffice 7700+ pages and in LibreOffice 4.1 even worse 8500+ pages.

File resaved in MSO as DOC

File resaved in MSO as DOC doesn't open thousand, but proper 4 pages. 
So I set as Low priority.
