Sample Document

For my German AOO420m1(Build:9800)  -  Rev. 1630928 Rev.1630928 on WIN7 64Bit the position value is limited to 5000. Steps how to reproduce:

0. In menu 'Tools -> Options  -> Draw -> General -  Measure unit' change to mm
   if necessary -> Exit -> Restart AOO
1. Open attached sample document
2. If Menu 'Tools -> Options -> Draw -> General - scale is not 1:41 change to 
   1:41  --> Close Document --> Reopen Document
3. Rightclick blue rectangle -> position and size -> Rotation
   > Rotation Point position will show x/y 5000mm/5000mm (strange coincidence?)
4. Try all options for rotation point position (top left / bottom right 
   and so on) one by one, 
   BUG: position value display will stay 5000

The same will happen with Draw unit "cm" and scale 1:410, Problem is not limited to unit "mm"

This bug causes real problems, as you can see when you try to rotate the "Sample text to be rotated 90°  - works bad here" text 90° counter clockwise: Position will be shifted out of sheet.

LibO 4.4 is not (or no longer) affected. 

I am pretty sure that I encountered some "magic 5000" Bug, but I do not remember where.

Very old issue, already reproducible with OOo 3.1, but was ok with 2.2

NOT a DUP, see Comment 2 in Issue 125899!

Some numeric control has Maximum = 500000 limitation in their definitions in 
src files. The reason of 5000 limitation is 500000 in 1/100 mm unit.
