I haven't looked at the bug reports but the problem I have experienced
is that "Distance before" (or maybe it is "Distance after" is treated
differently in the beginning of the frame than after a column break.

If I let the text flow normally into the second column everything
looks fine, but it I insert a column break to take care of a
widow/orphan I suddenly get extra space. I solved it by instead
inserting an empty paragraph (so the text flowed normally into the
second column), but that is IMO the "typewriter way".
