Reproducible (on WinXp 32b · UI en-US) with 
LibO 3.5.0 Beta2
[LOdev 3.5.0beta2 · Build ID: 8589e48-760cc4d-f39cf3d-1b2857e-60db978]

Moving back to NEW from NEEDINFO again.

This is still valid for Would be great if someone could have look. Maybe this is expected. But if File > Printing options > options > comments is set to "end of page" I assume LO printing a second page for the comments if there's still room on page 1 is indeed a bug.

Naturally, this issue persists with version 4.4.0

In fact, it has existed for OOo 2: The help integrated in version 2:
"End of page
Indicates that the notes should be printed on one extra page after each page containing notes. "

I think it is trying to help to print the comments on the same page if there is space (which is not easy)
either the option name is changed:
instead of "End of page" to "Page after page" or "After each page"
and add using the old F1 indication "notes should be printed on one extra page after each page containing notes"
