attachment is a zip file with 3 files, screen shot showing incorrect rendering, original docx file and doc file obtained from online service

My child came home with a .docx file he had to fill in for a school assignment. Original source unknown. I suspect the teacher downloaded it off "some website." based on metadata file was last saved in mac version of microsoft office.

When trying to open the file in writer, it doesn't render at all correctly. A 2 page file becomes one page, background images are over the text, etc.
bugs 55381 and 47769 look somewhat similar, but I'm not sure enough to add to one of them.

the behaviour is the same on LO Version (Build ID: 360m1(Build:2)) under Kubuntu 12.10 (installed from repositories)
 and LO Version (Build ID: 58f22d5) under win7

both are a 64 bit OS, probably a 64 bit version of LO in both cases, but I don't remember.

Confirmed with 4.0.

This one is not NEW, the only thin we know is that something seems to be incorrect.

Only one issue per report!
<http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#General_information> item 4
The sample document contains multiple problems, we will have to do several separate reports.

NO further report is required concerning the problem that the rectnagles ancured to header are shown in foreground instead of background, that is a DUP of 

There is no version "4.0"! Please contribute complete version info including your OS!
