Lightroom Classic: Book module generates pages of different sizes

I have a large 185 page book created in Lightroom Classic 9.0 Book module. The book is Standard landscape. Two of the pages are a different size to all the rest, smaller. The multi-page view shows these two pages as different size to the others. After exporting the book to PDF these two pages also appear to be a different size. Printing the book seems to move the page content around the printed page - some trim marks seem to be printed on the page.

I have not been able to reproduce the problem with a test book. I think if I create two new pages in the large book and copy the 'bad' page layout to these new pages they also change from being standard landscape size to this other page size.

The image below shows a section of the multi-page view and the smaller pages bottom left (pages 184, 185). I don't think this should be possible.

Are you able to create two new empty pages, copy and paste the text to the new page to correct the issue? 

Will the errant pages then delete?

I can insert pages, recreate the layout and cut/paste text, reformat type, etc and get correct pages. But  copying layout fails. So there is a workaround.
Sadly I didn't spot the problem before having book printed...
thanks

I am glad you had a workaround. I will keep an eye out for this happening again.
