Reproducible with server installation of  "AOO 4.0.0-Dev – English UI / German locale [AOO400m2(Build:9701)  -  Rev. 1489073  2013-06-03 13:48:37]" on WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile:

1. Launch AOO
2. From AOO Start Center open reporter's sample "esipt_text_2.svg" 
   via menu 'File -> open'
3. Click on pocture
   > 8 green control points appear
4. 'Rightclick -> Break'
   Access to picture elements becomes possible
5. Click on horizontal text "absorption" (you can use 'Find Bar')
   It's a normal text box with the text in it                        :-)
6. use 'Find Bar' to find string "Reverse"
   Bug: That will not work                                           :-(
7. Click on Word "Reverse"
   Bug: Impossible, it's not a text box with a string "Reverse", 
        but separate curve elements                                  :-(
        (what causes problem in step 6)

Additional info:
Some sample tests did not show differences between "esipt_text_2.svg" opened via File menu or inserted by menu 'Insert -> From File'

That's not completely new, I see similar problems with with "server installation of  "AOO 3.4.1 – German UI / German locale [AOO341m1(Build:9593) - Rev.1372282]" on WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile".
More or less the same also with 3.4.0. 

It seems some details have become worse between 3.4.1 and 4.0-dev. For example String "good enol form" (top right in picture) is imported as Text, in Rev. 1489073 it's imported as curve elements (but "bad enol form" with this version is correctly imported as string).
