Because page breaks are a thing.. this time trigger by section I guess
The first page starts with a table, that specifies a pagebreak before the table in the text flow.

Had a total different idea about the document design. The whole big table thing wan't to obvious
Hmm. I expected this to be an export issue, but it looks like an import issue.
1.) MS Word 2003 opens without a empty first page.
2.) If I first reduce the file contents, I don't get a page break. (However, simply round-tripping as another .odt first doesn't "fix" the problem , so it isn't something goofy like that.)
The different first-page footer is causing a first/follow page-style-with-page-break situation.
I think this is probably just a layout problem (since a reduced three page version imports just fine).
"no repro with 22.214.171.124, repro 126.96.36.199" is not sufficient to ask for bibisectRequest. Telesto, either do it yourself or at least find a specific version. And do not call devs before all is cleat, writing you always the same.
No repro 4.2, repro 4.3. Only now it's clear it's from 4.3, fileopen in LO, not in MSO.

Justin, can you please see and explain if this should be fixed.
It is almost guaranteed that this commit has only exposed the problem. If I am correct about it being a layout problem, then it involves different code.
Very few people should be allowed to touch the layout code, and there would need to be a compelling reason to investigate further. A fix for this would either require a lot of knowledge or a lot of time.

An attempt to reproduce the same layout in Word
I tried to create the same problem in Word from 0.
But no luck, despite starting the document with a table and a paragraph set to start on a new page ("page break before" in Writer terms), and a few more ideas, nothing - this document appears correctly in Writer, no extra page break.
I thought Writer might handle some mix of settings incorrectly, but this looks more and more like a layout edge case.

another test odt
I have the same issue with the attached odt document. Save it as docx causes a blank first page when open in Writer. This one does not start with a table.
