Graphics gone when PDF export.odt

Since I updated to 4.2.3 today, I encounter a severe problem when exporting documents with embedded EPS graphics to PDF. The graphics are simply gone in the PDF export. 

This is a regression from 4.1.4, where the PDF export just worked perfectly with EPS graphics!

How to reproduce:
* Open attached odt-file
* Export a PDF
-> Where the EPS graphic is supposed to be in the PDF, there is simply empty space.

Version:, Build ID: 882f8a0a489bc99a9e60c7905a60226254cb6ff0 (downloaded from LO website) (Ubuntu 13.04)
Previous version (where the PDF export worked perfectly): 4.1.4 (from Ubuntu PPA).

Comment 2 Gerry 2014-04-12 07:54:25 UTC
I feel free to increase the importance of the bug to "high", because:
* the most recent version of LO 4.2.3 is affected
* bug seems to affect all OS 
* data are lost in PDF export
* it is a regression from 4.1.x to 4.2.x

The same regression seems to exist in AOO after Armin's commit in October: See
Comment 5 Gerry 2014-04-24 07:33:17 UTC
Another related bug seems to be fixed in AOO on the 23rd of April with two commits, see:
Comment 6 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-04-28 10:32:19 UTC
Perhaps same root cause for this bug and bug 75216

Best regards. JBF
Comment 7 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-04-29 11:27:31 UTC
Fixed since the fix for bug 64161.

Best regards. JBF
