I can reproduce the bug
It looks also wrong in PPT xp.
After the import there are 2 gluepoints which I can't see in PPT 97.
The connectors snap to the gluepoints. In my mind the connectors are correct but
the position  of the gluepoints are wrong.
Please have a look.

The shape has a gluepoint in the center of the circle in PowerPoint. That is missing in AOO.
