The attachment opens in MS-Word 2002, but does not open in OOo1.1.1 and shows an
error message instead.

The attached file is an RTF document (have a look into the file with a text editor).
This RTF has a format error, thus OO isn't able to open it. OO's RTF filter does
not have an algorithm to repair such error, while MS Word has.

When saving a new version of the RTF with MS Word, it can be opened in OO. 
I changed the summary to something more suitable.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
