When generating a RTF with Apache FOP, if I insert a page break between two tables, it is not rendered correctly in LibreOffice.
I will submit a patch shortly to gerrit, but I'm also opening this bug to provide a detailed description.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open table_break_table.rtf with LibreOffice Writer
The two tables appear on the same page. See actual_results.png
There is a page break between the two tables. See expected_results.png
User Profile Reset: No
OpenGL enabled: Yes
This problem was reported by a Linagora client in 2014. A patch was made back then, but was not proposed upstream, I don't know why. The developer who made the patch does not longer work for Linagora.
The client used Apache FOP to generate a document. We have access to his .rtf, but not to the .fo source.
The original developer mentioned in our internal ticket system that the problem is related to a page break between two tables, so I picked a template from Apache FOP (examples/fo/basic/table.fo) and inserted the page break with `<fo:block break-before="page"></fo:block>`. The complete source is attached (table.fo) and the generated document is table_break_table.rtf. I generated it with latest Apache FOP version (2.3).
I don't know if this is the correct way of inserting a page break or if it's the same as the client's.
I can reproduce the issue with both .rtf in latest master.

PDF exported from Word
Here's the PDF exported from Word, since the screenshots from comment 3 aren't available anymore.
I can see three problems:
- the RTF contains a Section break (Next Page) after the first table, which isn't imported, causing the reported bug,
- highlighting for the heading "How to use table elements" isn't imported,
- the border of the 2nd table is a bit thicker than in Word.
Focusing on the reported issue, the break is there in 18.104.22.168, but the tables are completely gone in 22.214.171.124. The tables come back in 126.96.36.199, without the break this time.
The bug is already in oldest of bibisect-43all, so that can't be bibisected.
