Description of problem:
I have a Draw document created in open office under fc3. When I try opening it in open office on fc4, drop shadows have been added to a large number of the images in the document when previously there were not.
Additionally, when saving the document in the new format, it incorrectly saves the path to the images so that next time it is opened, it cannot find them. It misses out one of the directories.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an old oo draw document.
2. notice that drop shadows have appeared where they should not.
3. Fix errors.
4. Save in new format.
5. Close old document
6. Open new document
7. See lots of warnings about missing files
Actual Results: see above
Expected Results: First case, oo2 show display the doc the same as in the old oo
Second case, oo should have found the pictures
Please attach an original document as an example which does this

screenshot taken from 1.1.3-11.5.0.fc3

screenshot opened in openoffice.org-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5

saved and reloaded in the rawhide version
looks about right to me when opened in 1.1.3 and then opened with the rawhide
version. I'll push an fc4 update to be the same version as the rawhide one as
soon as I can. These screenshots are how you would expect it to look ?
The screenshot (openoffice.org-1.9.117-1.2.0.fc5) shows drop shahows on the
images above the class: XXXX boxes. These are not in the original file.
When fixing these and saving, the bad path name error seems to get introduced.
ah!, I'm blind. This is probably a generic thing in ooo2.0, I'll build a small
test case and hassle upstream
moved the bug to openoffice.org bugtracker,
