Example file, see the included comment for instructions to reproduce the bug

If a table has a vertical cell merge, and this cell is split across two pages, all cells in the row at the bottom of the page on which the merged cell begins seem to lose their vertical alignment.
"Format/Alignment" menu shows "Center" checked when this happens.

Updating a cell in this row eg. by inserting a linebreak before the text makes the text "remember" its centeredness. Updating the row by resizing it updates all cells and fixes all of them.

A table with merged cells

The table does not have to be split across pages, it is enough to include too much text. Just add one more letter to the last paragraph to see how "Title 2" moves to the top.

Apparently this bug is triggered when adding too much content to adjacent cells. I just added a new attachment that shows the behaviour nicely. Add one more letter to the last bullet list and see hot the middle alignment of the left "Title2" moves to the top.

Tested this on Windows, Mac and GNU/Linux versions. This happens also with OpenOffice.

The files are displayed wrongly, but the formatting is correct. Opening the same files with MS Office does not show this bug.

This bug appears to be a duplicate of bug 73955 (or the other way around - but IMHO, bug 73955 has the clearest and simplest example document).
