This a file in which the bug reproduces itself during UNDO after rotating 90 degrees

Due to a previously reported printing bug #68864, I have to rotate a Draw drawing containing text 90 degrees clockwise and then counterclockwise for the purpose of exporting to PDF and printing a 19x24 inch on two 13x19 inch sheets. I first tried rotating 90 degrees clockwise using "position and size", then used UNDO to return to normal.  Text which had rotated and exported correctly broke into two lines on UNDO, overlapping another text box below it.  The problem occurs only with UNDO and is permanent.  Rotating to 270 degrees instead of using UNDO causes no problem.

@Thorsten - thought this one might peak your interest ;) Seems quite nasty, I know the undo code is a mess but, a challenge perhaps?

Thank you for reporting this issue! I have been able to confirm the issue on:
Version: Build ID: 4547d8c42e5b0bb456ac02fbea67059a8a1cadd7
 Date: Tue Sep 24 01:49:59 2013 +0300
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64

As I've been able to confirm this problem I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Major - undo function completely breaking document, loss of formatting, unfixable without a lot of manual work
High - default for major bugs, seems appropriate

Version: Updated to 3.5.0.beta0 - I bibisected and it's been around forever, probably even exists in OOo before the split but I can't confirm this 100%. Our version field is the oldest version we can confirm the problem, not the latest we've tested (we use comments for that)

Note: For me it seems like the time format is changing as well. Furthermore the document itself upon opening does indeed have some overlap to begin with (near the bottom where it reads NOON). But it gets substantially worse after the steps here.
