I set up a new page with a very large size, 126cm x 70cm in landscape mode. When I started typing, every character appeared on a new line, as if the right margin had been reached. After I reduced the width from 126cm to 125cm, everything worked fine. As far as I'm aware Writer should be able to handle pages of 300cm X 300cm, but clearly there is a problem with very large pages. Perhaps an integer overflow, setting the sign to negative? That's what I can imagine.
I could confirm this bug with LO 22.214.171.124
I choosed Landscape (width 126cm; height 70cm; default margins) and could only type with a width of 6cm. I changed to 125cm and the width of the text was reduced to 5 cm. Everything was fine with 119 cm. So it is al little different to the original bug report.
Version: 126.96.36.199 (x64)

Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group
I used margins of 5cm, that can explain the differences.

I couldn't reproduce it with landscape and 300 cm x 200 cm
Version: 188.8.131.52 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: Standard;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group threaded
The problem still exists.
present version: Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
I made a new document, 126 x 70 cm (landscape), with 5 cm margins all around.
After typing 2 or 3 characters the cursor jumps to a new line.
Dirk, sorry you're right! I also still can confirm that problem
