page-turn-breaking with \pageBreak after title page uses awkward breakin

I'm having problems with page-turn breaking in one of my instrumental scores. 
As the score is 3 pages (with optimal breaking) and has a long rest about 2/3 
into the piece (with enough wiggle room to move the page break to the rest), I 
wanted to add a nice title page (and a \pageBreak before the whole score) and 
let lilypond do page-turn breaking.

Unfortunately, LilyPond gives a warning:

Calculating page and line breaks (1 possible page breaks)...
warning: cannot fit the first page turn onto a single page.  Consider setting 
first-page-number to an even number.

And LilyPond refuses to break the score at the R1*12.

Attached is an example. The page turn between page 3 and 4 should ideally be 
placed at the R1*12, but lilypond refuses to do so, instead breaking at the 
R1*5 and leaving one page empty (so 5 pages are used!).

Is this a bug in the page-turn algorithm?
