Problem File

We got our users to request that outside contacts send us documents in ODT, which is great.  This file was created in MS Office and fails to open.  Opening this file in MS Office and exporting to DOC also does not open well.

Tested with 3.6 and 4.0 with same results.

REPRODUCIBLE with both and 4.0beta1 on Windows 7 x64. The file can't open, LibO shows dialog that says:

> Read-Error.
> Error reading file.
Comment 3 Korrawit Pruegsanusak 2012-12-16 11:41:07 UTC
Note that the file could be opened in MS Word Starter 2010

Original .doc the problem document was converted from.

We contacted the vendor and they sent us the original .doc file the problem file was converted from (see attached). They said MS Office 2010 was used to convert it.

'Problem File' opens correctly, tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:
