Thanks for the report.

I've simplified your example to








If you now cut and paste `a', the (incorrect) result is `乡'.
However, if you replace value `19' with, say, `18.5', everything is
just fine.

Indeed, it's a bad interaction with the output routine.  With value
`19', an additional blank page gets inserted at the very beginning of
the above sample for no obvious reason.  This is a hint that \output
is seriously confused.

Under normal circumstances, the bug doesn't show up, as far as I can
see.  With `normal' I mean that LaTeX's output routine has a chance to
correctly finish the current page, without being fooled by strange
vertical offsets that makes text appear below the text's bottom

I guess it should be straightforward to fix your document to avoid the
problem by slightly modifying vertical distances, or adjusting margins
or paper dimensions.

Unfortunately, I don't have time currently to debug this in great
detail, but using the above minimum example you might ask for help on
StackExchange, for example.

Before adding such a fix it would be nice to really understand what's
going on...
