a document containing 2 examples of wordart of different shapes and colours

MS Office 2007 documents (docx) containing wordart do not view correctly in LO 4 and the wordart cannot be edited.

The same file saved in office2007 as .doc can be both viewed and edited.

After receiving several files with this problem, I have attached the following test documents:

wordarttest.docx - a document containing 2 examples of wordart of different shapes and colours

wordarttest2003.doc - the same document saved in 2003 doc format

In LO 4.2.0 wordarts are visible

I reproduce the bug in LibreOffice 3.5.4, but in LibreOffice 4.1.4 and 4.2.0 both wordarts are visible and editable. So, I think the bug should be resolved worksforme.

Unfortunately, bottom wordart in .docx does not have volume, but I believe it is another issue.
