Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. I open a documenti, made for MS-Word XP
2. There are fonts compressed in a figure, that aren't in MS-Word.

Current behavior: fonts in a figure are compressed

Expected behavior: I should see the document like in MS-Word, without compressed fonts.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice" German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: 2ef5aff] {pull date 2012-11-28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit):

Texts in picture 'tx_id_13_" look in a strange way narrow with very tall characters.

The problem has nothing to do with .doc, its a .wmf problem. I extracted the .wmf (see attached "problemcausing_200000620005A6F10001B215A12FD2C0.wmf"). 
When you insert that picture into a A0 landscape empty.dwg (original size of picture might be 236,14cm / 101,24cm width/height?) you see that the chracters have a nice width/hight ratio, but the ratio of the complete picture has width/hight ratio 3:1, instead of more or less 1:1 in the text document table.

May be that ratio is wrong? When I open the wmf in IrfanView, the green "A+" bar has a width/heigh ration of 2.5 what is  more or less the same as in the WORD document.

In " empty.dwg " (see above) with picture original size the green "A+" bar has a width/heigh ration of 5

So I think the root of the problem is a wrong with/height ratio of the drawing elements in the wmf when opened in LibO.

The effect is not new, I see the same with OOo 1.1.5. so if it's a bug, it's inherited from OOo.

I see the same problem with “Lotus Symphony Release 3.0.1 Revision 20120110.2000” on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
AOOo 3.4.1

Extracted .wmf

I can't be 100% sure that the problem did not come into the .wmf when I extracted it from the Word.doc
