page-number-restart? causes blank page?

Subject: page-number-restart? causes blank page?

Can anyone reproduce and/or explain the following behavior?  If
I set page-number-restart? to #t on a simple-page-sequence, Word
outputs a blank page on my OfficeJet printer.  I'm pretty sure
it's not an attempt to get to a new recto page.  And the blank
pages don't show up in a print preview.  Can I "fix" this?

Here's a sample document and stylesheet:

<!doctype book [
<!element book - - (chapter+)>
<!element chapter - - (title,para)>
<!element title - - (#pcdata)>
<!element para - - (#pcdata)>
This is chapter 1.
This is chapter 2.
