ODG file with fonts in top two rounded rectangles.

I created a diagram in LibreOffice Draw. It exports fine as a PNG, but when exporting as an SVG it does not show the fonts inside some of the shapes.

I have attached the OD

Confirming loss of text on export to SVG in the two boxes with rounded corners. Either export with selection, or export entire canvas.

If export to PDF, or PNG (w/transparency) the text is present.

Looking at .svg export, I see text lost as far back as 43max bibisect
repository version oldest.  I do not know how to translate this to a
version for the version field of the bug report.

Based on comment 3, I am setting O/S = All.

I tested the issue against 5.2.6 on Fedora 25, and it appears that the behavior has gotten worse. Fewer of the boxes preserve the text when exported to SVG.

Steps to reproduce with a new file:
* Create an new drawing
* Add a rectangle
* Set the area transparency to 100%
* Click on the rectangle shape's boarder so that you can add text to its center
* Type a few words
* Export as SVG
* Open the exported file in LibreOffice

Expected results:
* The rectangle shape will contain the same words
* Clicking on the rectangle shape's boarder should allow you to edit the previously entered text

Observed results:
* The rectangle shape contains no words
* Clicking on the rectangle shape's boarder allows you to add new text
