LibreOffice 3.5 odt to mobi problem?

I've recently upgraded to LibreOffice 3.5. Since upgrading, when I attempt to convert a document in odt format into mobi for my Kindle, there are large margins around the headers (e.g. Heading 2), when I preview the mobi file in the E-book Viewer. When I save the odt file as html from LibreOffice, there aren't any large margins visible. When I look inside the odt file, the styles.xml file also doesn't contain any large margins.

Another possible hint is that previously, when converting formats, on the Look & Feel tab, I previously would leave "Remove spacing between paragraphs" unchecked, and my line spacing and indentation from the odt file would be honored. Now, unless I check that box, I get large gaps between paragraphs, even though in my odt document I had an intra-paragraph gap of .02 inches specified.

Oh, by the way, I'm using calibre 0.8.41 on a Windows 7 (64 bit) system.

You need to open a bug report and attach a sample document demonstrating your problems.
