           Summary: Unexpected behaviour with Shapes → Intersect
    Classification: Application

           Version: OOo 3.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux

Created attachment 77047
Compressed file containing an odg example and a pdf output.

I'm aware that issue 10589 was closed as "worksforme", but the behaviour of
Shapes → Intersect depends too much on the initial conditions to be a reliable
tool: while it gives good results with small, non rescaled images, the results
could be terrible otherwise. 

Suppose you introduce a picture on a Draw document and then draw on top of it a
shape (a rectangle, an ellipse), if you select both and do Right click → Shapes
→ Intersect you will obtain the shape with the image as background. 

The expected result is the shape showing as background the part of the image
that it covered previously to the intersection. While this expectation is
fulfilled under certain circumstances (pictures that were not resized
and are smaller than the page) you'll obtain weird results on other situations,
like compressed, displaced or even distorted images.

See attached file for a more detailed explanation and for a simple example to
test the behaviour. The tar.gz file contains an odg file and the pdf generated
from that file.
