Sample of good and bad document re Draw object text background

I'm puzzled by the following behaviour of text added in a Draw object - rectangles, circles, text boxes etc..

* At the start of a new document, object text behaves correctly i.e. the text is black on top of whatever object area color is set. All is fine

* After adding other elements and much editing, ALL previously correct objects "suddenly" display a white background to the text.

* It's not obvious what causes it or when, but once it occurs I can't find a way to correct it. It happens with all the background types - color, hatching, gradient and bitmap.

* The issue seems to lie with the document itself because copy/pasting any of the objects into a new document "fixes" the problem, and copying a good object into the problem document re-introduces the issue.

I raised Ask Question 51080 but have had no solutions, so I'm wondering if this is perhaps a bug?  It's happened with at least a couple of Draw documents.  Of course I may be missing some setting or other technique to fix?

Just spotted Bug 88295 which seems to be the same thing happening with Impress.

A sample of my good and bad Draw documents is attached.

Using LO with Win 7.

Thanks for spotting bug 88295. Impress and Draw to my knowledge share the code in this, so I will set this as a duplicate.
