I don't really think this is a regression, the import result seems to match the WW8 import result after the above commit, so that looks OK. I'll have a look at the export bug, though.

Some more test documents might be the tdf103975_notPageBreakX docx's in ooxmlimport. They'll probably be round-trippable after this fix.
