I can reproduce the printing "issue" of it skipping back to the first page instead of where you started the printing at, i.e. page 5 or 6.

I am using Debian 64-bit downloaded from LO running on a Ubuntu 12.04LTS system. I have several printers installed - Epson Aritsan-810, Canon MG5400, Canon MG6200, HP Officejet 7000, HP Laserjet 2300, and Cups PDF printer [which is the default pinter]. All are network printers, not USB connections. I use the Postscript driver option[s] if available.

I tested it by printing to the HP Laserjet 2300dn

So why do I reproduce the issue on Ubuntu 12.04LTS OS with the 64-bit version
[build - Build ID: 0a0440ccc0227ad9829de5f46be37cfb6edcf72],
but your Debian 7.3.0 OS does not reproduce it?

That is weird. Could there be some OS variant involved here? Same DEB version of LO but different Debian based OSs reproduce it differently?

Owen, could there be that much difference with the two Debian based OSs to cause the different reproduction of the issue, yes on mine and no on yours?

I run Ubuntu 12.04LTS with MATE [1.6.0] as the default desktop environment. Which d.e. are you using for your Debian OS?

If it is OS based determination, of whether or not the issue shows up, will be even harder to sort this issue out for a bug fix.

This is the related AskLO thread:

I sympathise with your plight Joe, but it is incredibly difficult to
troubleshoot printing problems as there is a lot more than just LO involved.
It is important when asking questions on AskLO to provide as much detail as
possible i.e., for a printing-related issue, the printer make/model, the
driver being used, whether the printer is local or on a network (and if
network, the protocol), the printer language (PDF or PostScript), and so on.
This helps others attempt to reproduce / narrow down the issue.

I can't reproduce the issue here under Debian v7.3.0 x86_64 using v4.1.4.2
Build ID: 0a0440ccc0227ad9829de5f46be37cfb6edcf72 when printing to a HP
LaserJet 4050TN via CUPS v1.5.3 (IPP connection) using Printer Language Type
of either PDF or PostScript (from driver). There are reports in this thread
of it working as expected for MacOS+LOv4204, WinXPSP3+LOv4142, and in the
AskLO thread for Win7x64+LOv4152, but nothing exactly matching your setup of
Win7x64+LOv4142 (and no printer details are offered by anyone). The report
in this thread of a similar issue for Ubuntu+LOv4142 does not indicate the
source of LO, but it is possibly PPA, so difficult to reconcile with
behaviour of website-sourced copies.

Best wishes, Owen.
