pptx file created with MS Powerpoint containing trapazoids

Importing a pptx file created with MS Powerpoint that contains shapes results in very different shapes in ooimpress.

To reporoduce load the attached pptx file which is also available here:

In MS Powerpoint (where this file was generated) the slide looks like this:

In ooimpress 3.2 the slide looks like this:

There are many problems.  The main problems are:

- The trapezoid shapes are reversed left-to-right (big on wrong side).

- The gradient in the trapezoid runs left-to-right in Powerpoint and top-to-bottom in ooimpress.

- The midpoint of the gradient is white in powepoint and black in ooimpress.

The differences seem minor, but complex drawings are often completely different and indecipherable when imported.

Shape and gradient are wrong.

There are at least two errors:
(1) The trapeziod has a wrong default form. In pptx the small parallel side is top, in AOO it is bottom.
(2) The gradient should be mirrored but is not, when the form is mirrored and the gradient is set to "rotate with form" in pptx.
