I have attached a short file that illustrates the problem.  The troublesome
page break shows in the middle of page three.  Deleting it, causes the next
page to lose its footer.  None of this makes any sense to me.

     Then let me confuse you some more. I have downloaded your file and
worked with it for a while.
     First of all, I have a suggestion: your first page uses the First
Page style which is very good. But your second page uses the Index style
after creating a page break at the bottom of the first page. You don't
need a page break here. All you need to do is to right click the First
Page style and select modify. In the Organizer tab, change the Next
style from Default to Index. This will automatically make the second and
third pages use the Index style. (The Organizer tab for Index style has
the Next style listed as Index.) So, you only need a page break at the
end of the third page of the document to change the page style.
     Use page breaks when you have multiple pages using the same page
style followed by a page with a different page style. Also use a page
break if you want to change the numbering of the following pages. But
anytime you have a single page with a given page style, modify that page
style to select the next page style to be used. This is how you can set
up a left page - right page sequence without having to place a page
break at the bottom of each page.
     Further investigation, the layout you have in LO has something to
do with what you see. The bottom right of LO has three icons: single
right page, multiple right page, and multiple pages with left - right
pages swapping. (left - right - left- right - etc.) If I select either
of the first two, I see the page break in the middle of the page.
Selecting the third, I see a blank page between the third and fourth
page of your document. There is no visible page break.
     But as far as why LO 3.5 would do what we both see, I really don't
have a good guess. Well, it might be something that has been added to
version 3.5 since it is not in version 3.4.5.
