Unable to cast GroupShape to Shape

Hi,

we are using Aspose.Words.17.6 and have a problem with drawings… I have this little document, which is basically a WORD document with a diagram in it. When trying to save it, aspose fails with

System.InvalidCastException
HResult=0x80004002
Message=Unable to cast object of type ‘Aspose.Words.Drawing.GroupShape’ to type ‘Aspose.Words.Drawing.Shape’.
