Could you please attach such file?. Thank you.

Opened the file correctly in oo.org on fiesty fawn, but only after saving to disk and selecting word xml 2003 filter.

This document was generated from a webserver and had the name Document.doc. Instead of applying the right filter it showed the xml markup.
