RTF with images shown as empty misaligned frames

i created an RTF document with images and captions with my daughter with 4.1.3.  everything was displayed correctly.  (i don't know if it's relevant, but i had to use the paste/bitmap workaround mentioned in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55735#c5 to paste some of the images in, to avoid making writer slow and unusable.)
however, on re-opening the document several days later, the images were shown as empty frames and without some of their alignment/positioning/etc.  
exporting the document as PDF resulted in a PDF that looked exactly like the RTF.

i tried upgrading to 4.1.4 to see if that version would open the RTF ok, but it did not.

to see the problem: open the attached RTF.  
- images are shown as empty frames
- one frame on p1 spans onto p2
- all frames have lost their alignment (which was to the left or right of the paragraph in which they were inserted)

i've also attached the PDF.

when i originally came across the problem, i saved the document as an ODT to see if that would solve it.  with 4.1.3, i was then unable to open the ODT (Writer gave an error).  however, i can open the ODT with 4.1.4, although the images are shown as for the RTF.

Thank you for your bug report,
I can reproduce that wenn I open the RTF that they the pictures aren't shown. they are just white frames.

White frames are also seen in Microsoft Word 2010, thus this is not a bug.
