When the attached document is opened, and the size is changed to A0 (118.8 x 84.0 cm), which is not allowed by MS word, and for that matter will never be used in real life, the results are OK. If I subsequently change the margins, from the default 2.00 cm to 1.50 cm, and click "Apply" after each change, the second change (i.e. of the right margin) will put all text of the document in a single one-character wide column, oops...

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached lift-01.odt
2. Select all
3. Format menu, Page
4. Change size to 118.8 x 84.0 (essentially, A0), click "Apply", results OK
5. Change "Left" to 1.50 cm, click "Apply" - results OK
6. Chanhe "Right" to 1.50 cm, click "Apply" - Oops...
After step 6. above formatting changes to single one-character column for the entire document.
I would expect the right margin to be changed to 1.5 cm, without any further changes to the formatting!
User Profile Reset: No
Admittedly, this is an extreme example, as I doubt that Writer will ever be used to produce A0-sized documents, it was done to verify that the program doesn't have the MS Word (XP 2002, "freebie with PC") limitation of widths not exceeding 22(!) inch, but of course this behaviour is completely wrong.

Test file that shows the problem when the steps are followed
Not possible for me to change height to 118,8. Everytime it changes automatically to 600 cm. But if I try to reproduce your bug with 600cm * 84 cm, I can't reproduce it.
Width 118.8 (cm) Apply, OK
Height 84.0 (cm) Apply, OK,
Left 1.5 (cm) Apply, OK
Right 1.5 (cm) Apply, Formatting destroyed
This all with the file that is posted here!
I confirm it with

Result: Only one character per line!
Additinal information: In LO 6.3 not possible to chage height or weight 118 cm (I will file a new bug for that).
Works OK now @
