The issue in this file is different and is not duplicate of 
In this case the following is the behavior:
1) During the first round-trip the page break on the first page is converted to a section break(next page )
2) During the second round-trip the section break information is lost, due to which the TOC is spanned across three pages( first, second and third )
   whereas it should have been on one single page( second page in original file).
3) Due to this overflow of the TOC the following pages get disrupt and hence the footnotes.
4) Therefore while importing the second RT(342_Original_RT_1.docx) LO does not find the relevant footnotes and hence raises exception.

This scenario is observed only in case if there is a different first page is set.

Fixing the 1st point ( aforementioned ) will fix this issue.
