Reproduced with LibO on Win7.

The .doc content is clear for WORD : one frame :
- anchored to paragraph
- "autour" (= parallel) wrap
- containing 4 paragraphs and one "text area" anchored to one of these paragraphs.

Opening this doc under LibO shows messy frames and paragraphs properties :
- 4 frames
- inexplicable page jump,
- "optimal wrap" checked but not put in application
- etc

Not tied to the nested textbox, appears also if the textbox is absent.
