Bug#382598: wv: Bad numbering in lists, and bogus PDF

Package: wv
Version: 1.2.1-2
Severity: normal

 I have a word doc that wv has two (maybe separate) problems with.
With wvText, the numbering in the lists comes without the whole
hierarchy.  With wvPDF, everything's line wrapped terribly.  This
should maybe be two separate bugs.  split if you want.  

 I'll attach the word doc.

 The numbered list problem is also present in antiword, bug #382515.
(same word doc attached to that bug).

OOWriter produces good text output that looks like this:
CHAPTER FIVE: Marine resources of the Bay of Fundy 
(J.A. Percy)
5.1Introduction		103
5.2Status of marine resources		105

5.2.1Pelagic fish		105
5.2.2Demersal fish		107
5.2.3Diadromous fish		110
5.2.4Invertebrates and marine plants		112
5.2.5Aggregate extraction		119
5.3	Aquaculture		119
5.3.1Introduction		119
5.3.2Species in culture		120
5.3.3Potential constraints on aquaculture development		121 currents	,		121 temperature		121		122

wvText produces this:
   CHAPTER FIVE: Marine resources of the Bay of Fundy
   (J.A.  Percy)

    1. Introduction  103

    2. Status of marine resources  105

    1. Pelagic fish  105

    2. Demersal fish  107

    3. Diadromous fish  110

    4. Invertebrates and marine plants  112

    5. Aggregate extraction  119

   5.3  Aquaculture  119

    1. Introduction  119

    2. Species in culture  120

    3. Potential constraints on aquaculture development  121

    1. Tidal currents , 121

    2. Winter temperature  121

    3. Pollutants  122

 wvPDF's output doesn't look much like the word doc.  It seems to not
be treating the line breaks as line breaks, besides having the lists
numbered badly.

 Anyway, oowriter from openoffice 1.1 handles the doc fine, so there
is open source code around that understands however it is that MS
stores lists in their doc files.  The file was produced with some
version of MS Office running on Windows.
