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).

A quick test haven't raised any difference except the fact that 2 columns used slightly less memory, but I think it's not related to breaking as the number of active nodes is the same.

OK. The fact that less memory is needed for 2 columns, can probably be explained by the number of pages being roughly doubled.

As Vincent pointed out, the main cause is then the fact that (3 * space-width) represents a bigger portion of short lines. Basing that width on the actual line-width indeed sounds like the right idea to begin with.

If no one beats me to it, I'll have a look at changing that one of the coming days.
