Problematic document

The attached document contain a long table (~ 2 pages). In LibO the table doesn't split across pages but is all condensed to one page, making it unreadable. Also, it overlaps the header section due to lack of space.

Also attached are screen shots of the document in Word viewer and LibO

Copying the table to a new document or cutting and pasting the table to the same document fixes the problem (even when saving to a doc file). Just resaving the file (doc or odt) without any modification doesn't fixes the problem. Seems to be only an import problem.

Thanks Miklos, verified fix in 4.2.4 on Debian Linux.
