The spacing is much better now, but it still gets strange in some
not-too-contrived cases:

\version "2.9.19"

#(set-global-staff-size 18)

\header {
  title = "breakbefore spacing test"
  subtitle = "breakbefore = ##t still causes problems"
  piece = "Test"

  texidoc = "Score blocks seem to be badly influenced by neighboring
score blocks (or book titles) that have little or no vertical extent.
This problem only shows up with breakbefore = ##t and multiple staffs.

Visually, it looks like the vertical spacing is influenced by
surrounding pages even when those pages belong to a different piece
and there is a forced page break between pieces.

This is because the page breaking algorithm tries to ensure that adjacent
pages have similar vertical spacing (removing this code gives the results
you expected). I'll see what happens if I just remove this behaviour (the
line breaker does it, but the old page breaker didn't).

Ideally, this \book should contain a book title, a number of
identical-looking scores and finally the last, very small score.
