The doc and docx filters have been updated in more recent versions of Libreoffice.

To install it on Ubuntu 12.04, it's best to add a PPA. For the latest version at time of writing (4.1), open a terminal and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-1

followed by

sudo apt-get update

and finally

sudo apt-get upgrade

If this does not upgrade libreoffice then type

sudo apt-get install libreoffice

You now have a shiny Libreoffice 4.1 installed. Test your doc and docx exports and hope the problems are solved.

Would upgrading to 3.6.7 or be a solution?
