I have a .doc file which shows some items on two separate pages.
When open in LibreOffice Writer in 3.3 RC3 on Windows 7, it displays as a single page with the items superimposed on each other.
I have also tested with LibreOffice 3.3 RC3 on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick to confirm the behaviour.
The .doc file is attached.
I would be delighted to assist with further testing.

Simple sample file which opens differently in Libreoffice than MS Word 2003
In Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) using the latest repo version of OpenOffice, the doc opens correctly as two separate pages.
ooo-build 188.8.131.52, Ubuntu package 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu
In Libreoffice 3.3 RC3 it shows as a single combined page with contents of the two pages superimposed on each other.
Reproducable in Mac OS X 10.6.6, LibreOffice 3.3 final.
Reproduced in Ubuntu 11.04 via the Terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget -c https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=42208 -O example.doc && lowriter -nologo example.doc
