[OS X TeX] longtable

Well it is a problem-laden night for me!

I'm trying longtable for the first time. I have this in the preamble:

The long table has fairly short lines. It begins like this:

     \caption{Number of sets and stomachs for each stratum of the survey 
Origin & Strata & Nb of sets & Nb of stomachs\\ \midrule
NGSL&$101$&$ 10$&$  90$\\
NGSL&$102$&$ 13$&$ 108$\\

many more lines

SGSL&$439$&$ 12$&$ 140$\\
SGSL&$$&$ 13$&$ 224$\\

This table goes to the very bottom of the page, way past the margin, 
and does not continue on the next page.

I tried if there was any clue in the console, but did not find anything 
very informative, or at least anything I recognized as useful!

To get around the problem, at least temporarily, I even tried a manual 
page break at a spot that I judged adequate to just about fill the 
first page:

NGSL&$829$&$ 23$&$ 163$\\
NGSL&$830$&$ 24$&$ 176$\\

This had no effect.

What am I doing wrong?
