Reproducer document.

This is the docx version of bug 107773.

This concrete situation is one where the intention is clearly a multi-page table, not a floating one. When there is a section break: next page after such a table, that effectively disables any kind of wrapping, so in that case importing the table as a multi-page one is the correct thing to do (till the feature from bug 61594 is not implemented).
