I'm in no hurry... just feeling in a lily hacking mood these days, and
this mood may disappear as quickly as it came. Anyway, thanks for the
hints (and good luck for your exams).

I understand what's happening, but one should expect that lines with
null next-padding and next-space are stacked without extra space between
them nevertheless.  (Ok here the next-padding and next-spacing are not
exactly null, because of issue 2.). Maybe solving the null padding and
spacing issue will solve (or will mean solving) this one too.
