There are a few regressions at work here, but it has never been perfect. Chasing them is probably not worth the effort, eg. the "Unauthorised version..." from the first page footer disappears around 4.0, but for a bunch of commits it still reappears after scrolling around.

The footer going off-page to the right started from the following commit in 5.2:
author		Caolán McNamara <caolanm@redhat.com>	2016-04-27 14:50:05 +0100
committer	Caolán McNamara <caolanm@redhat.com>	2016-04-27 16:30:07 +0000

Resolves: tdf#99498 don't overwrite trwWidth value if set on a table
