Hi Clive,

This is a known issue. It was fixed in the 1.3.4 series and afaik made it
into 1.3.5 but was not implemented back into the 1.3.3.x stable series and
from what I understand in the notes in the bug tracker, it won’t be fixed in
that series.

Please refer to this bug and the related ones for a better overview of the
discussion around that issue.

What is suggested to fix this is what you already suggest: creating separate
master pages.

Cheers and happy new year!
