To me, the root cause appears to be the incorrect size of the text box

This is a minimal file to reproduce this. It contains simple "AB" chars and Arial font.

This is to compare the PPT file opened with LibreOffice and MSO.

The the tex-box is narrower than the text. In MSO the text flow outside of the text-box, but in LibreOffice the text-box is resized vertically (grow) to fit the text. I am not sure if it is our bug our MSO's bug.
