The screen capture is good, and it certainly looks to be an issue. But it would be very helpful if you can attach the problem .docx format document, or a new example with similar formatting, that demonstrates this issue when opened in LibreOffice 126.96.36.199
I appear to be having the same problem. Files using Cardo font that worked fine on Linux Mint 15 (I think it's 4.0.x) and Scientific Linux 6 (again, I think it's 4.0.x) are rendered as garbage in Linux Mint 16 (4.1.3). I downloaded the official 188.8.131.52 in case it was fixed, but the display is still garbage.
Since this is the font I use for all my print on demand books, this is a pretty major issue.
I'll attach a sample document, screenshot and the Cardo font files in a moment.

If it's any help, I found a Redhat bug related to the Cardo font:
Changing the OS/2 metrics in the font to the values specified there cured this problem. I presume something has changed in how Libreoffice uses those values, and now it's hitting a bunch of fonts where they're incorrect.

This is right, starting from 4.1, LibreOffice started using the correct vertical metrics for line spacing so broken fonts that went unnoticed before because they was relying on applications using the wrong metrics (common on Windows) are now exposed. I suggest repoerting this to Cardo developers in case they are unaware of it, but there is much we can do here.
Sure, I just sent an email to the Cardo font designer. I guess there are a bunch of other fonts that will have to be fixed, too.
I also experience this problem with Cardo. My workaround is as follows:
1. Begin typing in Cardo.
2. Make sure that at least one character on every line is either italicised or bold. The most convenient character to do this with is a space!
It's awkward, but it works for me. (Typing any character in Hebrew or Greek also 'fixes' the line height for me as well.)
