DOCX containing the 'Two Lines In One' feature

Problem description: 
When loading a DOCX that contains a 'Two Lines In One' feature - LO doesn't render it the same as MS Word.
(See attached comparison image).

Note ! In order to create from scratch a DOCX with a 'Two Lines In One' - you must add it to the toolbar by adding the 'Asian Layout' menu and you must have an Asian language installed (Japanese, Chinese etc).
I simply added the 'Japanese' keyboard.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load the attached DOCX in LO
2. The 'Two Lines In One' text does not render the same as in Word.

Current behavior:
The 'Two Lines In One' text renders as 'Justified' to both sides.

Expected behavior:
The 'Two Lines In One' text should be rendered like in MS Word (Aligned to the left in both lines).

Operating System: All
Version: Master

I can confirm this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.4 with LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 9ab800829b8a0e44824dc11276b54b1870bc5b2b in combination of Word for Mac 2011.

Kind regards,
