Should I file a bug report? It seems like a bug to me

Thanks!
To be honest you are better to convert the PDF to ePub. Then you can format it how you want it to look and convert it to AZW3. RTF in Word leaves a lot of garbage that you don't need and don't want. With ePub, you can make it look nice and when that's done, it will convert better. Plus, with Sigil, you can easily split at the page breaks or combine as needed. It's not that hard to pick up and it will give you a better file to read when you are done.

As for whether the page beak issue is a bug or not, it's probably not. No two PDF will convert the same. So it's just what is. You'll have to fix it averward. So if you convert the PDF to ePub and then use Sigil to correct the output and fix the formatting, you can then convert it to read on your Kindle better then RTF.
