problem with printing terms and condions on back side

Last Modified: 2013-11-15

I design a report in crystal reports 2008 and use it in a crystalreport viewer object in visual basic 2008.
My report has several subreports.
Until then everything works well.

Now I want the 'terms and conditions' on the back side of the paper (on a duplex printer offcourse)
So a pageheader is added with the supress option and the formula 'Remainder (PageNumber,2 ) <> 0'.
The pageheader has the size of a full paper.
Now when running is the first page ok, the second also with the terms and condition.
But on the third page the first row is missing. If I make my 'terms and conditions' page bigger i got the error that the size don't fit.
If I make my subreport detail section bigger (that the line that disapears) I have to make my 'terms and conditions' section smaller or the error appears don't fit on the page.
So It seems to me that crystal reports want to set at least 1 line of my subreport on the second page even if the space is so small that there is no visible output of that line.

I hope I did make the case clear to understand.
So if anyone has an solution or workaround please tell me,
