The sample uploaded is an RTF file, whch opens correctly. If saved As RTF (I used a new filename) and then re-opened, the page break is seen to be lost.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open sample RTF document
2. Save As RTF
3. Open the saved document
Page break lost (and header text on p.2 mistreated as a footnote, se separate issue)
Page break should be retained

Repro in 6.1+ and 3.6.5. Looks like regression from LO 3.6.
This report came from an observation against bug 92013

Similar or same bug was fixed in 4.3 (see bug 80167). So perhaps a later regression.
Yes, not yet seen in LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3 so should be bibisectable.

fdo#57708 fix fake page break problem during RTF import
The core of this change is: so far the continous section break at the
end of the document was sent as a normal section break. This was
introduced in commit 892d33c8d5033b4f8f7889bf91d257f55adf0e1f, probably
as a workaround (sadly it's not documented and I no longer remember).
Don't do this, since it causes additional page breaks during import.
Instead, fix properly whatever was broken after getting rid of this
Dear Bernard Moreton,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
This is probably in essence the same problem as in

I reported that as still a problem a few days ago, and the test then showed that this bug (116753) is also still a problem.
