It's something to do with Layer -> Type -> Convert to point / Convert to paragraph. I changed to 'paragraph' to try and make the text behave like a standard Indesign box, but I had this same problem.

If you still have access to CS6 (the higher version of both) you can simply go to File > Save As and save it downwards, that's possible in all Versions of Illustrator. It appears the standard Save As Dialog where you can set your Version. In your case click the Drop Down and select CS5 like:
The easiest way might be to: Make a background layer fill it with white. With your line drawn character on the top layer, flatten the image. Magic Wand the white on the outside of the character and hit delete. This should leave you with the white character! Hope that works!

From there you can enter any size you wish and even go back to 100% with out losing any resolution quality. Hope this helps.
