A presentation I can't seem to load in Aspose.Slides

I’ve encountered a presentation Aspose.Slides won’t load properly.

Presentation pres = new Presentation(file);

throws an exception “Couldn’t read “PowerPoint Document” record.”. The InnerException is “Read wrong number of bytes from Escher record.”. I’ve attached the presentation.


The presentation is broken.
First master slide contains shape with wrong record which show position and size.
Such record should be 8 bytes but there are 16 instead.
Also there is garbage instead of real shape’s coordinates.
MS PowerPoint doesn’t want to show this master too.
