Would it be possible you attach the files you use so we can give a try?
Of course, have in mind to remove any confidential/private part from them.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I don't reproduce this.
2 remarks:
- the content of resulting file seems ok but the counting of pages is wrong. When I go to the second page, it displays "page 3".
- accents were corrupted in odb file so I had to rename it.

To be sure, it's not encoding problem, replace accentuated "e" by plain "e" and spaces by "_".
