I am quiet sure at least the CSS 2.1 spec clearly states that page-breaks 
collapses. Page break are done in margins and the value of page-break is 
calculated from combining the the page-break-before and page-break-after 
values of the blocks that share that margin.

Note that is somethat hard to do, so it is likely there are bugs. I know 
Konqueror probably makes multiple page-breaks in your case, or at least did 
in my first implementation of page-break.
