Error: the page size was not large enough to format...

I have a report that when run, is generating the error "The page size was not large enough to format the contents of an object in the report".

I have traced down the error to a subreport that contains a report header, a grouping, and a detail line. The group header underlays the detail line. This particlar design is needed because sub-reports cannot have sub-reports (which is what I really need to accomplish the result in a more straightforward manner). I am using Crystal Reports 11 R1.

When I turn off the 'underlay following sections' option in the sub-reports group header, the error does not occur, although this causes the report output to be incorrect.

This problem was documented as a bug in Crystal Reports 8 under the KB note 1213290. It was assigned track ID 51974, but a technical support person could not find any track ID of that number. Maybe it was never fixed or maybe it is occuring again. Don't know, but I am definitely stuck without a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
