Consider the following MWE:



  \textbf{Lorem!} & \\
  \textbf{Ipsum!} &     
  \lipsum[1] & foo bar


There is nothing between the two longtable* instances, so as far as I can tell, they should be placed directly next to each other (vertically). When I compile this example, I get something like this:

longtables with gap

Where does the gap between the two longtable*s come from and how do I get rid of it?

(In my actual application, there are some format changes that have to occur between the two tables, so I can't simply combine the two tables into a single table. I have been able to reproduce the gap without any of my extra commands.)
