Karmic testing: OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 and tables in MS Office files

Have just found out that if you create a document with tables in Ooo
3.1.1  and then save it as MS Word 97 "doc" file the tables go missing.
The contents of the cells are there but no table(s)

I have tried rummaging around Launchpad to see if this is known and
about to be fixed as it is a major headacher for my users who have to
live with sending files in MS format to large number of contacts.

Has anyone seen this, can confirm it, and knows the status of this bug?
