Okay, does it add to the strangeness to say that this is a template doc?
The irregular page/page override effect was showing up in (apparently)
previously-fine documents after File> Import> Formats from the template doc.

Because this is a pretty complete template, the procedure is to make sure
everything is checked in the Import and Update list.

Is it possible to import document corruption through Import Formats?

I tried the doc> MIF >doc route.  The original and MIFfed files are
different according to UNIX, and if I do a cmp -l I get a lot of different
changed octal values.  Doesn't tell me anything useful, though.
