MRU->SJ: looks like graphic import from MS format. The inner Red/White area
looks kind of checkered after import.

I was able to replicate the bug with Open Office 1.1 on a Linux OS and with Open
Office 1.4 on a Windows XP OS.

I did some follow-up tests with a variety of JPEG and PNG images. It appears
that in most cases the quality of an image in an MS Word file is not compromised
when the file is opened with Open Office. It also appears that the bug is not
specific to the image provided by ragnarkum, as I came across other images where
the quality was compromised. Attached is a sample image which can be used to
replicate the bug. The image is blurred when a MS Word document containing it is
opened with Open Office. The quality is further compromised when the document is
exported as PDF from Open Office.

On testing how this bug effects printing I found that in all the cases when the
image quality is compromised on opening the Word document with Open Office, the
printing of the file opened in Open Office is also effected. Saving the file as
an Open Office type and then printing does not seem to help.

I can also reproduce this defect under WinXP version 5.1 build 2600 which has MS
Word 2002 and OOo 1.1.4 installed. The inner red/white area of the imported
graphic object in OOo 1.1.4 is very different than that in MS Word version.
