Zip File contains: RTF document with layout problems in document header, PDF file with correct layout

When opening the submitted rtf document in LO, the document header is incorrect, it has formatting and alignment issues.

The same issues happens with different LO-Versions (3.5.4, 3.6.2 and 4.0.0beta) and on different platforms (Ubuntu, Windows).
The document was produced with Mic.Office XP, our organisation has a lot of similar documents in use with the same problem, we are invastigating if we can import this documents in Lo without Layout problems.
The document contains anonymized text, and has a tipical document header layout in use of our organisation.

The attached zip file contains the rtf document with the allignment problems, and a pdf that shows the correct document layout when opend with MSOffice XP.

This is the first bug i open with Bugzilla so i hope the information i gave is complete for investigating further on this problem :-)

In LibreOffice 3.5.4 the headers are broken. In LibreOffice 4.3.3 and 4.4.0.0-beta1 the situation is much better. The only problem is incorrect column width (see screenshot).

Now it is bad again with the black/red shape. It is raised up so almost not visible. This happened sometime between 5.2 - 5.4, but it is not possible to bibisect because there is a long period of read error for the file!

I did a bibisect on Linux with 41max to find out what commit touched the layout in that period (so the black/red shape was visible instead of behind a cell). I got https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/c3b0f13546b30e5db3aecd311c7178e4e0933208%5E!/
