In previous versions, the table was incorrect
Comment 5 Justin L 2018-08-20 15:50:38 UTC
This is a small floating table that in Word splits across two pages. If I understand correctly, floating tables cannot cross pages in Writer.

Confirmed with 6.2 master

repro with 7.1+
Note that now there is an "unfloat table" option that appears on the table, and clicking that fixes the problem.
