I have a document with several sections that have two columns. One section behaves weird and I don't know why.

Whenever I work in the document, e.g. refresh the TOC, the second column of the section's first page and the first column of the next page get blank, and the content continues in what shoul be the fourth column.

When I delete the section and recreate it, everything's ok. I refresh the TOC, the error appears again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Delete section in page 80
2. Put text and tables in two columns
3. Refresh TOC
Actual Results:  
Every time the TOC is refreshed, additional empty columns are inserted.

Expected Results:  
No empty columns should be inserted

I created the file in Open Office, but that shouldn't cause the problem?

I could repro with the file.

I deleted all that was on page 80. Then I just inserted dummy text with dt + F3. Then I went and updated the ToC many times. I went back to look at pages after 80 and there were a lot of empty columns.

Everything is possible, so creating the file in AOO might cause the problem.

It would be great, if you found a way to reproduce the problem from scratch in a new file created in LibO.

Please write exact steps, delete from where to where (which text), page 80 is not precise enough, also wht exactly to put in 2 columns.
