 From your blog post
" In my opinion, Excel writes rectangular shape's coordinates after 

Excel writes different information. One is the object geometry in the 
xdr:spPr element. There you will find the original geometry, the size of 
the bounding box of the not rotated shape and the rotation angle. 
Another information is the anchor position of the resulting shape, e.g 
in the xdr:from and xdr:to elements of a xdr:twoCellAnchor element. 
Please do not confuse them.

"We need to control shape type for set shape rotation to zero in 
LibreOffice Calc, not anchor type (We need to delete patch for 
bnc#762542). If the shape is rectangular, set shape rotation to zero, 
not the text rotation."

I disagree with that. If the rectangle is rotated in Excel it has to be 
rotated in Calc as well. There is nothing special with a rectangle.

Kind regards
