This request for help should be in the Users mailing list, not the Discuss
mailing list ;)

Thanks for a friendly reminder! I believe you are right; this should be
posted under Users mailing list. Sorry.

For your information your document is an RTF with a wrong DOC extension
(just open it in any text editor).  I believe this was an old Abiword bug. 

LibreOffice has some known problems in handling with RTF files. The fact
that it is incorrectly identified as a MS Word DOC file doesn't help

Unfortunately opening and saving in several text editors can have this
kind of problems...

Yes, when I open the document with Abiword, it looks good.

Can't reproduce this by saving, neither in LibreOffice nor 3.4.5.
But when I take your Original.doc and choose "Save as", LO offers to save
it as RTF. And my Konqueror sees it as an RTF despite the .doc extension.
Does the file originate in MS-Write or TextPad or similar?

As far as I remember, the file originates in AbiWord. This issue could be
related to Abiword, like Pedro mentioned in his message. Thank you for your
time, anyway!
