How to fix invisible page breaks?

I have a long document (thesis) in .odf format, and the page numbers reset themselves to 1 after page 170 or so (the page where the page break occured sometimes changes, but even when I temporarily resolved it -see below- a random page break or two always came back). I use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

To resolve this, I have

  • deleted and re-inserted page numbers several times (issue remained)
  • searched for visible page breaks between pages (there are none)
  • checked in the "format"/"paragraph"/"text flow" tab whether the first paragraph on the reset page had the "Insert Break" box checked (it didn't)
  • looked for the same in the paragraphs before and after the invisible page break, but couldn't find anything.
  • uninstalled and re-installed LibreOffice Version: 4.2.7.2 (that fixed it at first, but then the same thing happened)

I would be massively grateful if you could help please, as I'm not sure what else to try.

Many thanks.
