This behaviour isn't necessarily bad in itself, it's just out of place
in cases where you have truly forced page breaks.  "breakbefore = ##t"
is such a case.

What will happen if you keep the current behaviour of the
line-breaker, but apply it to each section after splitting on forced
page breaks instead of to the whole \book?  (My guess is we'll get the
expected behaviour, quite possibly with a speedup as a bonus.)
