Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
Comment 3 Frederic Parrenin 2016-01-26 16:59:12 UTC
This problem is still present in LO 5.2alpha (build of 2016/01/25).
Actually, it depends on the version of word one is using.
It shows up with word 2007, but not with more recent versions.
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2016-02-04 16:41:35 UTC
Yep, it is true that in MSO 2013 the problem is not present.

Win 8.1 32-bit
MSO 2013

I currently do not have a version of Word 2007 to test this problem.

I think this bug has no reason to stay open.
DOCX opens without wrong border in newer MSO (test with 2016), so it's NotOurBug for older MSO.

Note: I'll add another bug report for frame borders.
