This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 RC1 and master~2013-07-01_09.19.22_LibreOfficeDev_184.108.40.206.alpha0_Win_x86 running in windows XP. It appears that LibreOffice loses formatting when importing MS Word .docx files. I have attached an example.
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.docx document in writer v4.1 RC1
2. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management.docx document in writer v4.2
3. Compare the documents.
Note in the screenshot that the header is incorrectly indented, causing the text to flow off the page. This may be related to Bug #66117 with the .doc version of this file.

Comparison of DocX in 4.1 vs 4.2
Note the header is rendered correctly on the left in 4.1 and incorrectly on the right in 4.2.
Thanks for reporting!
