demonstration of disappeared image

Page-anchored images can disappear from document which is possible to reproduce by using the attached .odt file:

1. Open the .odt file. It contains two pages of different styles: the first with header/footer and filled with blank paragraphs, the second one contains a page-anchored bitmap image (green rectangle) and has no header/footer.
2. Add one more paragraph to the first page (press Enter). The content of the first page overflows to the second one, which has header/footer now. The image disappears; actually, it moves to the header of the second page (you can see it if you choose Format - Page - Header tab and check AutoFit height).
3. Delete one paragraph on the first page (or press Ctrl+Z to undo). Document has two pages again, the first with header/footer and the second one without them.

Observed: The image disappeared completely.
Expected: The image should be visible on the second page.
Workaround: The image still can be reached and selected by Navigator, cut and pasted to the second page, restoring the previous state.

Probably inherited from OpenOffice.org, tested in 3.5.4, 4.2.6, 4.3.4 and 4.4.0 beta 1 (Windows 7 or Kubuntu 14.04).

Excepting that adding of two more paragraphs is needed in the step 2.
