DOC file that makes LO hang

Problem description: Opening attached DOC file with LibreOffice makes it freeze consuming 100%CPU for several minutes (process soffice.bin was killed by me after). MS Word viewer (under wine) opens this file in less than a second. Google docs also opens this file in a reasonable time.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached file in LO
2. See soffice.bin consuming CPU, not opening file.

Current behavior:

LibreOffice hangs.

Expected behavior:

LibreOffice should open this file in a reasonable time.
Operating System: Fedora
Version: release

still repro 7.0+
including with round-tripped versions from 2003.

If I change the wrapping value from the (very nice!) stripped down version, then it loads no problem.
