Wrapping long blocks of text causes text to repeat

I have a Java WebDynpro form which has multiple text fields that can be quite long. The containing sub-form and text fields have been set to expand to fit vertically. As well, the text field has been configured to allow multiple lines.

However, when the text field contains a large amount of text that causes the content to wrap over to the next page, the beginning of the field contents are presented again, and the end of the content is truncated.

Perhaps an example will better illustrate my problem. Imagine a text field with the following content:

1. This is a line

2. This is a line

...

64. This is a line.

So, 64 lines of text in total.

When the form is printed, the first page prints the following lines (since the output starts over 1/2 way down the page):

1. This is a line

2. This is a line

...

18. This is a line.

The end of page is reached, with the text field continuing as follows:

1. This is a line

2. This is a line

..

48. This is a line.

And then the document continues with the next section. This occurs with each text field that has a large amount of text in it, which destroys the printed document due to the repetition and absence of content.

Is this a bug, or a side effect of the way the document is created?

We're on NW 7.0 SP17.
