[ILUG] [Q] editing an M$-Word(?) drawing with OO.org - how?

I've got an M$-Worthless document (`.doc') which
contains a diagram (of the boxes with labels and
connecting lines vaguely flowchart-ish variety).
I've no clew how (e.g., what (M$?) program) was
used to draw it.
I've converted the document into `.odt' using
OpenOffice.org 2.3, and have been editing the
text Ok. (Not too happily since I hate WYSIAYG,†
but that's a different issue!)
However, there is an error in the diagram (two
of the labels (text in boxes)) is wrong), so I
want/need to modify it. OpenOffice.org doesn't
let me; all I seem to be able to do is select
the entire diagram as a single object. ;-\
I have managed (via copy-and-paste into OO.org
Draw and then File→Export...) to save the image
(as a PNG), which I can (in theory) modify with,
e.g., The Gimp. But it'll be hard to match the
font (of the other labels) et al., so I'm not
too keen on taking that approach.
Any ideas / Suggestions / ... ?
