WMF-containing file whose wmf is shown all white.

I have a file which contains a WMF file which shows a scientific curve (Proton resonance). Perhaps it was created with MestreC. Libre office shows it as blank. I have multiple of those but cant show more until it is published.

WMF extrected from OOo 3.1.1 document

MS WORD Viewer shows some kind of chart with measurement results.

Already [Reproducible] with
- "LibreOffice rc" German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: 2ef5aff] {pull date 2012-11-28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
- server installation of "LibreOffice rc German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
- LibO 3.3.3
- OOo 3.4.0

But worked fine with OOo 3.1.1, so I was able to extract the wmf 

server installation of "LibreOffice rc German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) fails with this task, too!

Even if I save reporter's sample from OOo 3.1.1 as .odt the chart will not be shown in LibO (but looks fine in OOo 3.1.1)

And also DRAW is not able th show the WMF I extracted from the OOo3.1.1 document (see attached WMF)

So this simply is a WMF problem

This one might be related ot or DUP of one of these <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?list_id=176508&short_desc=wmf&resolution=---&resolution=INVALID&resolution=WONTFIX&resolution=DUPLICATE&resolution=WORKSFORME&resolution=MOVED&resolution=NOTABUG&resolution=NOTOURBUG&query_format=advanced&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&longdesc=wmf&longdesc_type=allwordssubstr&product=LibreOffice>

The effect is that all contents of the WMF is shown at the same small place when I open sample 2012-12-02 10:50 UTC, Rainer Bielefeld wiht Draw. 

@Lennard Wasserthal:
Can you help to confirm or falsify my suspect concerning DUP?
Comment 5 Lennard Wasserthal 2012-12-02 16:16:54 UTC
Perhaps the same as:
Bug 39327
The onliest other bug which may be due the same reason is Bug 39256.

Comment 6 Lennard Wasserthal 2013-01-13 20:46:42 UTC
OK. I came nearer to the spot here!

This is an EMF Problem!
This WMF contains an EMF.
If you remove that emf, the wmf is shown correctly.
the EMF shows the same content, too, but not with LibreOffice.

EXCEPT: if you modify svtools/source/filter/wmf/winmtf.cxx, ImplMap, default case so that 

(both are 1 normally)


delete the items 0x1E == EMR_INTERSECTCLIPRECT and 0x4b EMR_EXTSELECTCLIPRGN from the file. The fact that it is shown without text should hint that the error is further ,,upstream'' in the file processing process.

I am working on this. Problem appears on windows, too. Problem not there with OOo 3.3.
