RTF causing General Error

Using Word 2013, I tried to create a stripped-down test doc for Bug 84534. The resulting document opens fine in Word, but in Writer gives:
General Error. 
General input/output error.

Confirmed in 4.2.6, 4.3.3 and master. Regression as it opens fine in 4.1.6.

Added Miklos since I believe he worked on 4.2's new RTF filter. Feel free to remove if I'm in error.

Remove redundant 'rtf_filter'.
