MS .doc file fails to import correctly

This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 RC1 running in windows 7 and XP. It appears that LibreOffice loses formatting when importing MS Word 2003 .doc files. I have attached an example.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.doc document in writer 
2. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.doc document in Word2003/Office 365
3. Compare the documents. 

Note item #5 in the image comparison. The footnote is not displayed correctly import.

Note the missing footnote

For me the footnote is not MISSING completely, it is on the other page.

@Steve: ping :)

Kind regards,

On another page

Tested using Mac OSX 10.8.3 with LibreOffice RC. Footnote is on the next page, not on the right bottom of page 2. Still a bug off course, but not the same behavior as reported.

As noted in #60120 for the the entire document shows up rather broken when scrolling downward (LO, OS X 10.8.4). 

That behavior isn't really reproducible. Just tried again after closing LO. Now it displays fine. Sorry, I don't have any more specific findings.
Comment 5 Luke 2013-06-29 16:03:26 UTC
The missing text is pushed to the 3rd page in LO, most likely because of #66117 #66118 #66119 or #66120. Maybe we should close this, until those are fixed.

Hi Luke,

This has been previously reported. See for exemple 
Bug 58521 - Endnotes always start on a new page, 
but still not corrected.

Have a nice day,

Thanks Jacques for pointing out that this is a dupe.
