complex .docx document with lots of formatting issues when opened in LO
With every new version of OO first and then LO I've been testing how my 2009 docx PhD thesis looked. Back in the day the formatting problems were horrendous. Now it is more bearable but still a long shot from perfect interoperativity.
I am not sure if this may be of help but decided to attach the document as an example of a real world complex docx file in which it becomes impossible to work switching from MS Office and LO, something necessary in collaborative environments as academia.
Hopefully it can be used as a test-case to help nail down all the formatting bugs existent.
To replicate, simply open the file in MS Office 2007 and then in LO 4.2. Most problems are focused on figures not showing, text frames now showing all the content (e.g. search for "Cuadro 2"), etc.
If needed I can try to list the formatting problems thoroughly.
Thank you for your bug report, I can reproduce this bug running
Build ID: 1a67b7cc3d5dc3dcd0de0e247f638c33d57dea1b
TinderBox: MacOSX-x86@49-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2014-03-23_05:59:09
OS: Mac osx 10.9.2
I have compared it with Microsoft word 2007 on Windows 7
Because of the problems the page number are the pages on libreoffice.
Problems that I have found:
-no smart-art on page 33, 80, 81, 99, 100, 113, 124,142
-Text box is wrong on page 38, 46, 48, 75, 80, 81, 83, 86, 101, 105, 109, 120, 124, 145, 147
-on page 56,62, 67, 88, 95/96 the white/not filled dots are placed wrong
- page counter in footer is missing
Reproducible with LO 188.8.131.52, Win 8.1
Missing page counter in the footer, missing smart-arts (e.g. page 33), different length of the document (164 vs 174 pages), wrong text boxes (e.g. page 76).

.DOCX resaved in MSO
Sample .docx is 2007 version. Here is .docx resaved in Word.
This was wrong bug report, because rule is one issue per bug, and even that after search for duplicates.

Smart-art on page 33 present in new DOCX, with some distortion. Already known issue that it's not read from 2007 format. Needs search for distortion issue.
80 and 81 no smart-art in Word, that's page 83, same as previous. Etc.
> -Text box is wrong on page 38, 46, 48, 75, 80, 81, 83, 86, 101, 105, 109,
> 120, 124, 145, 147
Page 38 nothing, page 39: seen in new DOCX, wrong spacing. Needs search.
From 83 seen in new DOCX. 1st wrong spacing, 2nd empty. Needs search.
> -on page 56,62, 67, 88, 95/96 the white/not filled dots are placed wrong
> - page counter in footer is missing
Not in new DOCX.
So, main issues are empty text boxes, wrong spacing in some and smaller issues with smart art.
If issue not found in search, report needs a minimal sample DOCX created in MSO.
"different length of the document (164 vs 174 pages)" no need to report, cannot be fixed like that, it's text engine and rendering.

Minimal 3 pages .docx saved in MSO
Here is minimal 3 pages .docx (around original page 83) saved in MSO for the issue of text boxes.
And here things get strange.
Text boxes that were empty when opened from full new DOCX saved in MSO are not empty in this minimal .docx.
Just issue with spacing.

Minimized test document in docx format with VML textbox
Since the SmartArt looks now okay, let's focus on the texbox spacing issue.
(I thought we already caught all these...)
Anyways, this has only one textbox from the original document in VML format, no direct formatting only Normal style text with 0 cm before/after paragraph spacing.
For some reason this gets imported as Frame Contents style which has 0.21 cm after paragraph spacing and this causes the text not to fit in the textbox anymore.
Attachment #157041 [details] is converted to DML format but the same style change happens there too.
In older versions the same is happening all the way back to:
