I work frequently with tables that have 2 rows and many columns (5-10) that span many pages, the top row being a header that repeats on each page. I often need to insert footnotes into the table, both in the header row and in the second row. After inserting a few footnotes, I will inevitably experience problems with the display of the table. In the attached document, which is a sample of the kind of thing I work with daily, as soon as I inserted the third footnote, the table suddenly jumped to the second page and instead of spanning multiple pages, seems to think it's all on one page; the cursor will continue to go down below the displayed text. These problems disappear as soon as I set footnotes to display at the end of the document rather than on each page, but this is no solution, since I need footnotes to display on the pages themselves. This seems possibly related to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125885 and https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120139.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached document; see that the table is displayed incorrectly.
2. Set footnotes to appear at the end of the document; see that the table displays correctly.
3. To try it from scratch: open a new document.
4. Write some text.
5. Insert a table with 2 rows and 10 columns, header repeating on each page.
6. Insert enough dummy text in the table to make it span multiple pages.
7. Start inserting footnotes at random places. It should very quickly mess up how the table is displayed.
Table display is messed up; it moves to the second page, does not display all the text nor split it onto the next page correctly.
Table and footnotes should be displayed properly.

Here is the document that demonstrates that footnotes and long tables do not interact well.

Bug 125885 and bug 120139 are related. However, this quite a nice simple example.
