Libreoffice 5.2.3 writer problem printing frames while printing 2 pages on one sheet

Hi everybody,

as the subject says: In Libreoffice writer I have a problem printing frames while printing 2 pages on 1 sheet is select. The Frames are simply not printed. Funnily enough: this did not appear on every frame. If i create a fresh new and short document with a frame everything works fine. If I open an "older" dokument some frames are printed and other are not. I tried different thinks to make them print:
- unsetting PDF as default printer in the settings
- try to alter the anchor of the frames
- try to take another printer (even cups pdf printer)
The result is the always the same: As soon as 1 want to print 2 pages on one sheet, some frames disappeard (in the preview window).
By the way: in MacOS (LibreOffice 5.2.2) there is no such problem.

I'm using Arch Linux up to date with a HP Officjet Pro 8620 of HP Laserjet 5L with HPLIP (or PDF Cups).
The versions are:
gnome 3.2.22
linux 4.8.7
cups 2.2.1-1
hplip 3.16.10-2
libreoffice fresh 5.2.3
with libreoffice still 5.1.6 everything seems to be ok...

Kind regards
