TESTING with LO + Ubuntu 14.04

- In FF 34, the sample SVG shows a short line segment and the word "below" horizontally centered below the segment, with some whitespace between the two
- Imported into LO, the SVG has the word "below" centered on the segment, but the two are overlapping with no vertical whitespace inbetween


Note: If you open the SVG in Draw, the vertical whitespace exists, but the word is no longer horizontally centered on the line segment.

Status -> NEW
