Example with forms which are not printed properly

In the attached file (OpenOffice Template) there are two form fields, one below the other. The first one is printed far to big, thus the second form field is hidden in the printout (and also in the pdf export). The page is displayed correctly.

LibreOffice Writer ( prints the form "Reisezweck" in the example file far too big and thus the following form "Reiseweg" is hidden completely. 

The two form-fields are nothing special and come from an old OpenOffice Template, the bug is reproducible on different Suse Linux 11.2/11.3 (64bit) installations with different printers for the attached sample-file. The wrong layout also appears in pdf export and when printing a pdf.

OpenOffice 3.2.1 seems not to have this bug since printing the same file with the OpenOffice Writer works with the correct layout.

Interesting - in the print preview it looks OK, but when you open the print dialog, it is already broken in the left hand window with the preview...

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
