Is this an addon? There is no grid at this position with this features in any version of the writer I have: LO 3.3.4 and LO on OpenSuSE 32bit.

There is not text-grid in my installation of LO under OpenSuSE 11.4 32bit and KDE.

Please check 

 Tool > Options > Language settings > languages > Enabled Asian languages
If that is ON, the tab of the "text grid" will appear.

Now I have found it. You are right: "Max. base text size" changes only "Lines per page". "Characters per line" were automatically set and must be corrected after closing and opening the dialog again.
I have changed the Status to "new".
