This sounds like the culprit. I can't test at the moment, but if you 
don't hear from me, the solution is to "change the 
[keep-together.within-column] property in "formal.object.properties" to 
'auto' to get page-breaks" (from the bug). Hopefully that will space my 
text normally.

The solution you mention in the bug comment sounds like what I was 
trying to do.
