Powerpoint file containing an image with custom animation (Motion Path:Left)

On opening a file in Impress that was saved in Powerpoint in the 97-2003 .ppt
format, the custom animation "Motion Path:Left" isn't being converted properly.
I've attached PathL.ppt which provides an example of such an animation. The
expectation is that after starting the slideshow (F5) and then clicking the
left-mouse button, the image would move left towards the centre of the screen.
It doesn't move at all. 

It would appear the path the image is supposed to take has been converted
incorrectly, and is now shown in the top right of the slide, rather than the
correct path from the image to it's destination. It also appears not to be

Perhaps it may be of use to know that the closely related custom animation
"Motion Path: Right" does appear to convert properly (PathR.ppt provides an
example of this).

I've also attached an annotated image which might demonstrate the issue more
clearly than I've been able to describe it.

Although I've only mentioned .PPT (97-2003) files, the same occurs in .PPTX
files - that is that Motion Path: Right works as expected, but Motion Path:
Left behaves as detailed above.
