When I open the attached document LibreOffice Writer inserts a <text:soft-page-break /> just before '188.8.131.52 <text:tab /> Taakuitvoering'.
Also it somewhat behaves weird around that soft-page-break.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open document
Soft page break in document
No soft page break in document
User Profile Reset: Yes
This also affects somebody who've I've sent that document using a Windows machine

File without pagebreak, but with after load
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
Created attachment 161941 [details]
Copy/paste of the original file.. looks as it supposed to look. Delete the first page break break and the soft break is inserted
Build ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b
Let's call this a serious glitch and see what happens
* Page breaks are quite essential..
* Text flow shouldn't be broken..
* It's an old bug
* There are more complains of layout of broken layout (in large documents, likely caused by this)
* It happens unexpectedly
* It's hard to solve -> Except for copy/paste
1. Open attachment 161941 [details] in multi page view
2. Delete the page break on page 2
3. Look at the new layout
4. Undo gets even worse :-)
You might find this interesting to follow, based on comment 0 bug 129101
The problem with the design of this document is that every single paragraph is trying to "keep with the next" one. So LO is trying to fit the entire document's content on the last page - together with the last paragraph. Since it doesn't all fit on the last page, some of it has to end up on previous pages. The results are going to be somewhat unexpected, and extremely taxing on the layout engine.
I guess I should be clear on how to "fix" this design.
I'd say for this particular document you would want to modify the paragraph styles for Heading 4 and Heading 5, and on the Text Flow tab, remove the "Keep with next Paragraph" setting.
