Screenshot with LibO 4.2.3

If I have multipage tables with raws splitted across pages, and in some cells I try to align the text to the bottom of the cell, the text won't jump to second page where the row bottom really is, but will remain at the bottom from the first page. The problem seems to be the same from NeoOffice 3.4.1 (based on OOo 3.x code) to LibreOffice 4.2.3

Still present in 5.4.3 (macOS 10.11.6). Tried to reproduce in 6.0 RC1, but program crashes immediately after opening any document... even a new one, but that's another problem.

Writer file showing problem with bottom alignment in tables spanning pages

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 85f04e9f809797b8199d13c421bd8a2b025d52b5

This issue has still not been resolved after over 6 years! Open the attached writer file. Place the cursor in the blank cell and press "Align Bottom" (Table toolbar at botom of window).

EXPECTED RESULT: Cursor should move to the bottom of the cell on the next page.

ACTUAL RESULT: Cursor only moves to the bottom of the first page.
