Actually I think it's worse/more general than that - I'm on a cell that's at the top of a page and can't split the table there as the cell above it falls on the previous page, but if I add some paragraph marks prior to that above cell to shift them both down so they are on the same page the Split Table becomes available.

I can still reproduce the problem with

Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Calc: CL

Steps to reproduce
1. Open a new document in writer
2. Insert a table with at least on row
3. add 3 paragraphs to that row
4. Add some paragraphs above the table, so that the table row is across two pages
5. Put cursor within first paragraph on the second page

Actual result
"Split table" button is greyed out.

Split Table is grayed while the cursor is in one cell of the first row of the next page in a table allowed to split across pages.


1.1. Put the cursor in a cell that is completelly on the first row on the second page (row do not break across page).
1.2. Put the cursor in a next page paragraph pertaining to a cell that shares both first and second pages (row do break across page).
1.3. Select more than one cell on the first row on the second page (row do not break across page).


Actual results:
After step 1.1. or 1.2. Split Table is not selectable (is grayed out).
After step 1.3. Split Table is selectable (is not grayed out).

Expected results:
After step 1.1. and 1.2. Split Table is selectable.
