I am also investigating grids. Switching this feature on has introduced
orphan/widows in the standard body text. I've applied setups according to:

and it now fixes also problematic index entries :-)

Like orphan/widow settings weren't specified by default...

But I suspect the correct result to be rather coincidence... Some higher
number of lines kept together still produce orphans... But it is overall
much better now.

One extra observation. Regardless the number of lines in the setups max. two
lines seem to be kept together in the index...
