[Bug 1217912] Re: next record broken


A rather old bug but apparently stil open, so I can confirm.

Similar behaviour on my machines (Win-7 + LO - Ubuntu 14.04 + LO

I tried to merge with two records on one page. Next record does _not_ move to following record within the page. 
Have tested with 14 records which should produce 7 pages, but effectively result in 14 Pages with one record on each page duplicated.

Tracked it down to sth. broken in "Next record" as in my german version I need to change its  condition from "TRUE" (w/o quotes)
to "WAHR" if i want any content to be displayed. Values like 1, true or formulas like "1 == 1" lead to empty fields and are not interpreted as true as is stated in the documentation. 

In a lenghty thread here http://www.oooforum.de/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=66666&sid=0f9402539c0792064978220f6c213d06
others explain, that my files work correctly on their machines.
