tdf#91260 svx, sw: don't paint off-page part of drawing object
Since commit a4dee94afed9ade6ac50237c8d99a6e49d3bebc1 Writer no
longer forces drawing objects to be entirely on one page.  However since
there is only one SdrPage for the entire document, a drawing object
dangleing off the bottom of one page will be painted again on the next
page, which is clearly undesirable since Word doesn't do that
(and it also destroys the nice invariant that a fly on page N never
overlaps a fly on page N+1).

Not sure how often this setting is set, but quite frustrating issue. And being around long enough.
