Do you mean that this last try is /always/ performed (even when we

It's not always performed (so it's formally correct), but in my
tests it's rarely avoided, more precisely just once, with the file
"my_franklin_rep-jus.fo" that is composed of many paragraph in 1
column with justified text. What I think (obviously, I may be
wrong, as it has been proved in other mails ;) is that another
intermediate try, with a judicious threshold, can be performed,
leading to the same final result but with much better performance,
if this intermediate try doesn't fail like the previous.
Have you investigated whether the column-balancing approach is of
influence here? I mean: are there significant differences between
using one narrower column (the same width you would get when using
two columns, only it will roughly yield double the amount of pages).
