I am using writer 4.x.  I formatted an 8.5 x 11 page as follows:

Top, Bottom margin = 0.25" Body is a table with 1 column and 3 rows. The top row has a height of 5". The middle row has a height of 0.5". The bottom row has a height of 5". The numbers 0.25+5+0.5+5+0.25 add up to 11.

The table will not fit on one page, the bottom row goes to a new page.

I think this is by design. You have to wonder whether any borders which your table has are stolen from the row sizes or exist in addition to the row heights. Since borders can be significantly large, it would make sense to me for the row heights to mean the size of the usable row space and not to include the border. So if your table has borders (which it will by default), the total height of the table will be larger than the sum of the row heights.

How do I fix this?

Either suppress the table borders or else modify the row heights or page margins to allow for whatever borders you choose.

I trust this helps.
