Yes, es hasn't been helpful at all. That other fellow tried it on
Debian with a few different versions (32/64, upstream, Debian package)
and only could reproduce it on Debian upstream.

Yeah, I get that impression. =P
Well, by all means if you'd like to lead this fight... I'm getting
fed up with them, personally. If I find time this week, I'll save the
test case doc in a way that stops breaking images in Debian OOo and
then I'll tear apart the two files and try to see how they differ.

Well, it's been a rough road over the years with OOo. I use it a
*lot* and I've been on Sid for quite a while. I expect bugs to show
up and go away over time in lots of packages, and I simply don't have
time to report them all. So usually it's just the catastrophic ones I
report. This one just won't go away though, so that's when I finally
got fed up.
I understand your concern though, about trying to figure out where a
change came in to play ages ago. If I can determine what all is
different with images in the file format between one working and one
non-working version, perhaps it will give you more to go on.
