Arg.  Is there any easy way round ?  I tried to add a 
(make paragraph (literal "\no-break-space;")), but it just adds to the
row height - that is, each cell seems to get an empty paragraph, and
the relative vertical positionning is unchanged.

This may be because the 2 other cells in the row both contain images
that the text is valigned on cell bottom - in contrast, a single-line
cell with multi-line siblings get valigned on top.  This discrepancy
may be a bug, possibly related to the non-handling of vertical
alignment - the text baseline is kept aligned with the bottom of the

How difficult would this be to implement vertical positionning the
right way, so that all those problems are solved ?  I did not look at
JadeTeX source, but I guess I could give it a try - unless you feel it
requires too much knowledge of the whole thing...
