Created attachment 90962 [details]
This is an image showing a before-and-after comparison of the disappearing freeform line. Two other persistant shapes depicted on the left are drawn using the "Elipses" tool.

Problem description: 
After drawing a freeform line, curve, or shape  using the freeform tool from "Drawing" toolbar, the shape does not reappear after saving, closing, and re-opening the file as PPT.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Draw a freeform line on a slide in Impress.
2. Optional: add a custom animation ("appear", for example) to the new freeform shape.
3. Save the file as a PPT and close.
4. Open the PPT file again.
Current behavior:
Freeform line disappears. Other shapes may or may not persist.
Expected behavior:
Freeform line should persist.

              
Operating System: openSUSE
Version: 4.2.0.1 rc

Repro steps:
> 1. Draw a freeform line on a slide in Impress.

- Open new presentation
- On the Drawing bar, click the drop-down arrow next to the "Curve" icon, and select "Freeform Line"
- Draw a forward slash "/" across the slide

> 2. Optional: add a custom animation ("appear", for example) to the new
> freeform shape.

As it's optional, I'll skip this step.

> 3. Save the file as a PPT and close.

Saving as "Microsoft Powerpoint 97/2000/XP/2003 (.ppt)"

> 4. Open the PPT file again.

> Current behavior:
> Freeform line disappears. Other shapes may or may not persist.

Confirmed.

If I repeat the test and save to ODF instead, the line remains after closing and re-opening the document.

Already in 3.3.0.

Fun fact: if you first save as ODP, reload, then save as PPT, reload - the line does not disappear!!
