.docx file to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:
- open the attached .docx file in LO
- make a trivial change and re-save the file
- open the file in MS Word (tested with Word 2007)
=> MS Word hangs and cannot open the file

Originally, this file was created from a .docx file (presumably created with MS Word) and modified in LO 5.0.2.

word2010 - unknown error in file. Location: Part:/word/document.xml, Line:2, column: 2175

Part of xml file on Line:2, column: 2175:  <wp:simplePos x="0" y="0"/>

According to http://officeopenxml.com/drwPicFloating-position.php  Note: Microsoft Word seems to not fully support positioning with <wp:simplePos>   maybe bug in word.

The example document already fails to open in Word even before touching it with LibreOffice.  Can you provide the original that is untainted by LO still?  Is this a duplicate of bug 99090?

This is not a duplicate of bug 99090.

Unable to reproduce.  Tested re-saving the file provided in comment 3 using 5.3dev, 5.1.2, and 5.0.5.  Word 2007 was able to open all of the LO-saved versions of the file.
