Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build

There are many problems with the document - missing data in the table, 3 pages instead of 2, misplaced objects.

As comment 3 indicates, the attached example contains numerous errors. The main issues / aspects in the document appear to be:

- Text box placement i.e., all p.1 content as shown in MSO2003 screenshot.
- A few small tables i.e., Document/Version and main table on p.2
- Content in tables in header/footer i.e., only displaying on p.2+

The "missing data" from the main table on p.2 may be related to bug 48378. Tested under GNU/Linux using:

- v3.3.4.1 OOO330m19 Build: 401

Only minor changes in positioning (I hesitate to label these improvements) across these versions, indicating that the problems are yet to be addressed in any significant manner. Version set to 3.3.4. Platform to All/All.
