Synopsis display bug, and workaround.
I noticed that the synopsis for a few of my books was not being displayed correctly on my Glo. It was being truncated to two pages, and in some cases part of the first page was repeated at the beginning of the second page.
The synopsis html didn't contain anything unusual, just plain <div>, <p> and <i> tags, and the text had nothing but letters and ordinary punctuation. I checked the .opf file in the .epub after it had been sent to the device (by Calibre), but it was not corrupted in any way.
The problem seems to be related to paragraphs that begin on or near the last line of a page, perhaps something to do with the widows/orphans bug. The workaround I found was to either merge paragraphs or split a paragraph into two to change the end position. Then the synopsis displayed correctly.
As an example, here is a synopsis that did not display correctly on my Glo:
And here is the changed synopsis that displays OK:

Just changing the font size also solves this problem. Not just for the <p> tag but also for <i>, <b>, <small>.
