Thanks everyone who replied!!! This solution -- plus looking at the doc at
400 percent magnification -- did the trick.
After everyone validated the right way to do this, I took a closer look at
the blank pages at the beginning of the second file. The second file was
supposed to begin with a tag that starts at the top of the page. Yeah, it
started at the top of the page, but prior to that page there were multiple
blank pages. I finally found a teeny tiny cross-reference marker stranded at
the very beginning of the chapter. After I deleted it, voila! the chapter
