1. Create a writer doc
2. Type several paragraphs, and Use a "Style and Formatting" on then, such as
"Heading 1"
3. Put the cursor at the beginning of the first paragraph, "Ctrl + Enter" to
move then on the 2nd page. From top menu, "Insert" -> "Indexes and Tables" ->
"Indexes and Tables...", click OK button on the "Insert Index/Table" dialog.
4. "Insert" -> "Header" -> "default", type some words in header field
5. "Insert" -> "Footer" -> "default", type some words in footer field
6. "File" -> "Save" to save the file as type as "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP".
7. "File" -> "Reload", observe the result.
8. Open the saved file by MS Word, observe the result.

In step 7: The words in Header and Footer disappear except first page.
In step 8: The Header and Footer field has been disabled, neither seen nor edit.

Header and Footer display normally.

Part of the problem is the section breaks added in the conversion process.
Each table of contents/figures gets a continuous section break before the title
of the table, between the title and the table, and at the end of the table.
Each of those section breaks offer a chance to trash the headers and footers.
