The example file created in Word 2010

Figures in docx, which contain text, become rectangles in LibreOffice. I create two bugreports: one for figures on canvas and other for figures which are NOT on canvas, because for the case with canvas is reproducible only on some 4.3.0alpha0 builds. I am not sure about the word “canvas”, because I have only localized vercion of MS Word. Please, correct me if it is not correct word.

This bugreport is about the case WITHOUT canvas.

How to reproduce:
1. Create new document in MS Word 2010 (I don't try other versions)
2 Create new figure, for example, ellipse (Insert → Figure). Make sure that the figure is NOT on canvas
3 Right click on figure, add text
4 Save the file in docx format.
5 Open the file in LibreOffice writer

You see a rectangle instead of the figure.
In attached file bottom line of figures demonstrate the bug

I reproduce the bug in several versions of LibreOffice from 3.5.4 to
