Description Andras Timar 2015-04-10 08:18:05 UTC
Created attachment 114711 [details]
bugdoc (DOCX)

The attached bugdoc contains an embedded OLE object (MS Paint file). In the document, the embedded OLE object is displayed as an icon, which is EMF. The background of the bitmap should be white/transparent, but it is black in LibreOffice 4.0 and higher.
