It looks like it works with some RFCs; the trick is to check pages that
are either too short (break early) or fairly long with little vertical

I think what's happening is that you pick a fontsize that exceeds what
can be printed on a page. It's not that the break fails, its that some
pages end up longer than a single frame.
