Shows how superscript and subscript are handled in Writer

Problem: If I turn some text to superscript or subscript, the text is only reduced in size and then placed INLINE with the bottom line of the normal text. 
* Even superscript is settled at bottom like this (not raised beyond the topline)
* The subscript does not sink below the bottomline of normal script.

The same problem also happens when I insert a footnote (its marker should appear like a superscript, but it does not.)

Attaching a document. I have included a screenshot of what I see, so that you can compare with what you can see...

Note:  Bug#64685 mentions that a similar/same problem is resolved and verified in 4.1 alpha, but I am still getting the issue in beta2.

According to the advise I got for another bug (filed together with this one), I uninstalled the LO, deleted all user profiles and cleaned up the registry. Then did a clean install without any of the 10 Adons I had installed earlier.

The plain vanilla LO does not have this issue.

Probably the issue is in one of the Addons, or registry etc.
