The key is that the problem doesn't occur until you close and reopen
the file -- so there's something in Visio format that PowerPoint doesn't
like. Saving in PowerPoint is corrupting the info that came from Visio.

Given that MS products are most comfortable with .wmf format and
that Visio can export to .wmf (Windows MetaFile), my first attempt at
a fix would be to go through the process of exporting the shape from
Visio (Save as wmf) and importing the shape into PowerPoint (Insert >
