Underline text color get lost saving or loading doc or docx.
Analizing docx (word/document.xml) here a sample part of xml:
<w:u w:val="double" w:color="00B0F0"/>
Attribute "w:color" are not considered on reading and are missing on writing.
In case Filippo's report is a bit too condensed:
Both Writer and MS-Word allow definition of colors for character underlines (that is: the line, not the text itself). Text filters do not export this property to DOC and DOCX and also do not import it from DOC/DOCX - the only Word-compatible filter supporting underline colors currently is RTF.
Excel and PowerPoint do not support underline colors. I haven't checked if they are specified in OOXML (which would make them exportable to these formats).
Tested with LO 3.5.4 and 18.104.22.168alpha1 (Ubuntu 12.04). AOO 3.4.1 also does not support underline colors. So: changing platform and version.

underline-colors: sample docs in DOC/DOCX/RTF
Sample documents created using Word 14.0 (Office 2010). And a screenshot showing the document as displayed by Word.
The RTF filter works best, but does not extend its support for underline colors to the comments.
Seems to be a valid problem: Version: 22.214.171.124.alpha0+
