I suppose I should chime in, as the particular behavior Svenja is describing
is a bug that has been present at least since Writer 3.x, and I have
you have a table of contents in the beginning, it will show the incorrect
numbers as well (if you hadn't already noticed).

The good news is that the page numbering restarts/changes seem to occur only
in memory, and are not saved. The solution (which I believe someone on this
or some other forum told me) is to Save your latest changes, exit Writer
completely, and then restart it - opening the document again.

You'll see that now your page numbering is correct, and will remain so until
you've worked on the document for a while. Like Svenja, I found that the
page numbers "restarted" at about the same place in the document each time
the problem showed up, but definitely not at the exact same place, so I
suspect it isn't any problem with the way you've specified page styles,
numbering styles, section breaks, or anything like that.

BUT BEWARE - if you export to pdf while the page numbering is quirky, the
pdf will reflect the incorrect page numbers. So my usual practice is always
to save and reload before exporting to pdf.

By the way, I have been using the 64-bit Linux Debian version of LO. It's
been a while since I poked around this particular annoyance, but my
recollection is that I decided through some utility or another that it
wasn't a memory issue with my machine, as there seemed to be plenty
available - I also recall some suggesting varying the memory assigned to LO,
but that didn't seem to make any difference.

I never filed a bug report (sorry Svenja), as the person who informed me
seemed to insinuate that this was a bug that had existed for quite some
time. Given that I knew how to work around it, I just did so - there are
certainly other annoyances that I would like to see addressed as I don't
know how to work around them, but that's life.
